You don't even need to edit your gateway's .newsrc file.  Check out
the -D option in uqwk. :)

ObHack:  Uhhh...not much really.  Does the "use your tongue to test
how good a 9V battery is" hack work? :)  OK, OK, I think the SIMMS in
my Ensoniq TS-10 are coming loose as I booted it up and it said there
was no sample memory.  As there were guests over expecting a
demonstration I couldn't very well take it apart and look for the
problem, so I just did the ol' drop the board from about a 1" height
and try it again.  That seemed to do the trick!
