ok, sorry it took so long to get back to you, but here's the problem: I
took out a bunch of "intelligent config" fields in the header, when blob
tried to read the baud rate from the core tag, it got zero and set the
baud to 230400. I am going to change the magic number of the paramater
block by 1. Any future changes that can cause blob to become confused
will also change the magic too. In this case, 230400 *is* a sane value
for baud, but it doesn't work. Since baud is so important, I think that
I will put a validation in there, two fields, one baud, and the other
one (baud XOR 0x5A5AA5A5, thus reducing the chance of that field getting
corrupted and the unit being unreachable. Before I implement a XOR baud
field, are there any better ideas (I'll implement the magic change right
