Gotta start somewhere. :-) Unfortunately, I don't want to destroy the microprocessor by popping the lid off Or had that occurred to you? :-)
I'll have to see if I can get my PROM burner to read, though at this point it's probably a lot easier just to buy a new one. Pop the PROM, read it, disbuttemble it, make sure it's all good, put it back in.
(Or burn a Linux version on a new PROM. It's been done.)
Don't forget to check your keyboard. Someone might have slipped in an extender in there, with RF capability broadcasting to a bug.
(It's been done. Not to me, fortunately.)
Look, you cook your trolls your way... :-P I happen to like 'em fried.
In any event, "trust but verify". At least I have the "verify" option. Can you use a disbuttembler? Would it be much use?
Lots of little firecrackers. They make very pretty pock marks. Lots of pretty pock marks. See, there's a hole!

Hey, *I* didn't make up those logos. (Not that mine is any better; it's a smoke wisp in front of a gear. But then I never could draw.)
