Actual software upgrades are decidedly more dicey, as it's not clear as to whether or not our extensions would all work. That's the very reason we've been sitting back. However, the main thing that was keeping us from going forward MAY have been fixed (it seems a bit ambiguous) and that may address the issue of why DPL isn't working even after I upgraded it.
Okay. If you're gonna take care of it, I'll leave you to it. I was thinking if I didnt hear anything by later tonight that I'd try just backing it up to that external drive (let me know if you want me to mount it) and try to do it myself, but clearly you would know more about it than I would.
