Saving these little gems, although both problems are seemingly 1/2 assed
under control now...we shall see...btw this is normal typing.

last nite I rebooted and in cmos actuall enabled typmatic rate to it's
minimums so it so maybe it's actually making it mind.

right now system times are off 2 mins after all nite ...yest. that would
have been 10-12hrs. I stopped all ntp or whatever that is...going out to
one of the time servers...just getting time from the host system.

I have no clue if these 2 tweaks will hold over time but It did have all
nite to gain time as it was doing and didn't
