Re: [N8VEM-S100:873] 1.1k 10-pin Resister Pack supplier (or alternative values)?

Thanks Tom, John.  Doing the verification part here before the testing
:->.  We need to collect these sorts of "tweaks that work" for the
various boards in appropriate locations methinks.

John:  While I've been reading up on the various calculations
regarding the selection of o.c. pullups and fanout/in calculations
(Wilcox Section 3.1.1 is quite good) I haven't found anything specific
on the selection of open-input pullups.  Recommendations?
