" I was chatting to the "keeper of obscure graphics hardware drivers"
" for NetBSD (such as cg14/sx/cg12/pnozz) and it turns out he doesn't
" have a sparcstation4 with its 8bit tcx.
" I wondered if anyone on the list might have one they would be willing
" to part with?
" Hes busy with other stuff right now but I think its safe to assume it
" would be given a loving home and put to real use in its twilight years
" (after all, how many people are serious about being able to run kde3
" on an accelerated cg14 in a 32 bit sparc box? :)

somewhere i have a ss4 system board in a bag, functional state
unknown; i never used it.  it came out of a chassis i put a seu20
into.  as pointed out, it's an aurora board; ss5 and ss20 chassis are
the same.  most ss4s came with a lightweight ps but mine didn't.

i'm in 01835.

i have experience in receiving things but none in shipping.  assuming
i can find it, what's the next step?
