Unfortunately, this is true.  The 840AV uses 40ns 64 bit interleaved
memory that is tied directly to the processor, clocked with 040 timing
cycles.  The A4000 (originally designed for an 020 board) is clocked with
020 cycle timing.  If you pop in an Excaliber board, the memory speed is
more than 5 times faster using the same SIMMs from the A4000's

1. The 'marc barrett' problem...

I'm curious if there is anything that can be done to do away with this annoying

Perhaps if everybody did a "reply via e-mail" to every post that mr. barrett
decides to post, that he might get the hint that we are not interested???

I wouldn't bother with any actual reply, just bounce back the mindless drivel
that is being sent our way to begin with!

Who else thinks this may work?
