It really would be nice to get the whole thing sorted properly. Say, Dave, you???ve had to take a break from that thrill laden life of Blindfolded Naked High Altitude Para Cave Diving you normally enjoy; got time?

I'll try to double-check it this weekend, but we already know that the
the version that I want people to use (i.e. mine) works fine. Granted
we did not try regenerating the C source from an oscog image, but I can't
think of any reason why that would not work.

I really would prefer if people would use the original version of OSPP
that I maintain. After all, I tend to be the person who ends up answering
questions like "why doesn't OSProcess work on my Raspberry Pi?"

Mind you, I'm not at all sorry that I bought that Raspberry Pi to figure
out why OSProcess was not working. Very cool little gadget, and I'm glad
you finally gave me an excuse to go get one :-)

Remind me to find a picture of the crude ultralight airplane I used
to fly back in the 1980's. It would make your brother look reasonably
sane. Inexplicably, I survived that one too.
