I've got my 2+ banks of FCB-Repeater commands written down, taped to the 
rack side.  Formerly I relied on my memory (not good), but after a 
period of little looping ("Little Latin Lupe Lu?"), I was not real sure 
what I'd programmed.  Then someone posted here what they'd found on the 
archives as a sample of a FCB-Repeater setup.  It turned out to be mine, 
what I'd posted way earlier!  Won't lose it again...
