It seemed like a reasonable idea at the time.  I'm using it to monitor
the line voltage.  You send it a command.  It tells you the min input
voltage since the last time you asked.  The faster I ask the better
time resolution I get on the duration of glitches.

Thanks for the suggestion.  It's a 1 GHz VIA C7 system.  It was running
at 250 Hz.  I just switched to 100.  No change.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
