Re: Guide to running RobC's Doom implementation on Master/PiTubeDirect with SD card interface

And links that always point to the latest ADFS hd image files that RobC creates.. I think they're too big for GitHub and ...

I didn't mean to offend. There has been a lot of shuffling about this last week or so with the classroom and it has been difficult to keep up between a lot of planning re the exhibition. Thanks for doing the honourable thing in lieu of my error Robert

I also expect to arrive at about 1:00PM and I first want to spend a few hours in the museum but I can also help with arranging tables or so.
