Thanks! I've seen that blog before waiting on my jalas but haven't 
checked it in a long time. I guess I'll be waiting for a few more months 
as my order number is in the 9xxx range. It's tempting to go ahead and 
roll the order over to the PCIe card but I figure it'll take another 2 
years to get it.
