Maybe Mike, but I've gotten way more help here than on the emc or 
debian-user lists.

Now, you might want a trinity bug report just to keep this a wee bit 
closer to the list topic:

The only problem I have with trinity is I can't install it anywhere 
because the keyserver will not give me a key from the key retrieval 
command line shown in the "Debian Trinity Repository Installation 
Instructions", printed out from the wiki page of that title, its 
refusing my connection but I can ping just fine.

Once I have that, and this next install actually installs a grub2 booter, 
I ought to be off to the races.  The rest of it should be just a-h and 
elbows efforts until I have stretch running as smooth as wheezy is right 
now. As I've probably forgotten 50% of what I did, I know some of it 
will probably have to be re-invented, but I'll at least see the light at 
the end of the tunnel.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
