<< I am having trouble finding confirmation that there's a minimum of one year that has to pass between when someone recharacterizes a Roth back to traditional (tech fund lower now than when we converted it) and when it can then be re-converted back to Roth...is this true? >>

There are restrictions. If you recharacterize now, you can't convert until 1/2001. This date is off the top of my head. Please do not rely on it. I do know for sure that you can't go right back to Roth. This issue is covered in an article in the Tax Strategies board's FAQ. There is also a discussion in IRS Publication 590 and the instructions to Form 8606.
