Hi Allen. :)

Have you seen this:

The Pegasos schematics are there for download.  You have to join as a  
FREE Developer Member first, but they are there and you can get them.

Genesi just joined the Board of Directors of and there are  
a few new things about to happen.  In the meanwhile, you are welcome  
to join these Developer Programs as well:

We would like to see more NetBSD participation (the hardware is free  
if you are approved) - especially for the EFIKA which will be used  
for this effort:

Best regards,
