Greets!

Donnie lost his system[1], which sucks for us in terms of continued X support, 
a critical part of many Gentoo installations.

After talking with Kingtaco, he agreed that (if the trustees agree), we loan 
Donnie the old board/cpu from Nemo  (the pre-AMD donation nemo).  This board 
has sat unused mainly because there is a badly burnt transistor on the board, 
but nemo was working fine when we took it down.  The burn is close to the 
SATA and USB chipsets, neither were being used by Nemo.  I think this was the 
factor that allowed it to work as it did.  With this in mind it has no 
intended future use in production by the AMD64 or releng teams.

There would be no cost to get this to Donnie, as he lives here in Corvallis.  
He can swing by my office and pick it up as soon as the Trustees agree on 
this (if it is agreeable).

Cheers,

-Corey
