Hi, all.

The problems I've been encountering lately seem to be attributable to
sporadic hardware failure. My newish (less than a year old) system is
seemingly gasping out its last breath. I'm going to try to replace it.
But, anyway, the panic reports I've... reported... can probably be
ignored. I've sucked down the 19990315 snapshot - at least, the kernel,
base, and comp packages - and I segfaulted in several different spots
and at several different times, even with that. Things seem really
unstable. It has to be hardware.

Anyway, the two "gathering" lists I've put together - netbsd-boston and
netbsd-nyc - might suffer from this. I'll of course hope that my system
stays up, but uptimes of half an hour seem typical now. Also, I'll probably
be unable to attend tomorrow's gathering in Boston, as I'll doubtless be
scrounging for a shoestringlike replacement. Who knows? If I can find
something in the morning, I'll head up.
