As much as you want some those old things back, me thinks it ain't gonna happen and it's not Marty's fault.
Marty did not build this board. It's a canned package. Often times when software updates are implemented, we lose some of those old favorite things as the techies who design these things think they know more about what we want & need than we do. And then they go give us new toys that we never knew we needed. Me thinks that's the deal.
My money is on Marty and I'm betting the better software changes (that led him to his decision to upgrade) made were the backroom kind that makes his life easier.
Of course, I could be wrong.
