I think I'm going to go this route, though the magazines are in short
since the cable modem arrived.... Oops, was that out loud?!? The O-ring is in
very good shape, but the condition of the paper gasket had me very worried. I
suppose the DPO or DPPO (or DPPPPPO?) reused the gasket, it looked like rice
I want to thank everyone for their advice and guidance. I'm glad this
have awoken the list, it had gotten a bit slow for a while.
