I tried sending you a private mail, but your mailserver rejected it
(see below). My message was:
If the I2 goes for scrap - Id like the graphics boards from it. I
have an I2 R10000 with a bad SI boardset. Also, Im always looking
for any paired U2 CPU's. Ill pay for shipping to Canada, of course.
Thanks, Cheers, Geoff.
