Hi all,

OK.  If it's going to become a frequently-used term on this 
reflector, I have to be true to my (very weak) medical and (less 
weak) English training, and offer the correct version...

lobotomy... severance of nerve fibers (as in the frontal lobes) of 
the brain for treatment of some mental disorders.  A second meaning 
I think we could accept is the one pertaining to severing (and then 
rebuilding) certain aspects of a SB220.

I apologize for this, but I thought somebody might actually care 
about getting it right.  (Of course, there's the possibility that 
"labodomy" means "severing and rebuilding a SB220", but I can't 
find it in my dictionaries!)   8>)

At any rate, I continue to learn lots by just reading traffic on this 
reflector.  Thanks to all.
