I'll have to wait until I go to work to try out things, since I can't
repro the problem working remotely from home.  Right now I have an
annoying head cold so I'll have to see if I feel up to going in
tomorrow, otherwise it will have to wait until Tuesday.

There's one uncompressed that covers dates starting at Jan 6, 2015.
Then there are 9 compressed, starting from last April 16 (2014).

I can't see my boot menu right now, but in my /boot directory I have 4
versions of the 3.16 kernel installed: 24, 25, 28, and 29.  I'm
currently running 29.
