I would firmly have to agree. 

I've been trying to figure out where I can do the most good to
help NetBSD. I've made some changes to the zs driver and a few
kernel mods that speed things up. I will send in a pr once they
are fully tested.

But, I do have access to a full T1 pipe to the internet. And
I would be more than willing to dedicate a SS2 to being
if people were interested. I'm not talking about using my home machine
but rather a dedicated machine.

Not being able to get timely access to or
has been very discouraging..
