It's spelled BE32! ;-) I vaguely remember doing some of that on vulcan,
but that's a decade ago, and I've paged it out... ;-)

OK, it now makes some sense. Maybe a comment somewhere will help if
someone tries to reverse engineer it again in the next decade!

No problem.

Looks pretty cool, and surely even better once entirely converted to DT
(I'm sure I can revive this FSG-3 that has been collecting dust on the
shelf for a number of years).

Please CC me on the whole series next time you respin it!

Thanks,
