The currently available mini-beep.iso is identical to the one I
downloaded when Samuel originally posted it, so I'm sure it has not
been updated.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm a little nervous about ending up
with a system that might not boot. I'm trying to avoid the need to
compile my own, too, so maybe patience is the policy to follow here.

Samuel says on his home page that since daily builds of mini.iso  are
now available, he is not going to update his own. That's entirely
reasonable, but I have no braille display, and speakup is not yet
included in the daily builds. 

Thanks also for your experience with the ltlk synth. I'm sure I was
misinterpreting the failure of the device with a frozen computer. I
won't be so quick to reboot next time the device quits talking.

Exhilaration is that feeling you get just after a great idea hits you,
and just before you realize what is wrong with it.
