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.
