I suspect I'm going to feel silly for needing to ask this, but how do
I contact DTS and what does it stand for?

I was aware that there was a patch for the 6400.   Does that same
patch solve the multi-level PPB problem in PowerSurge as well?

Thank you again.  I'm ecstatic to have received this info from you.
I wasn't expecting to ever get any info on this issue.  Most people
don't seem to know about it, or aren't willing to discuss it, maybe.
