I takes *3 months* to move here? Wow. 8-).

I've got a board sitting here waiting for DEC to deliver the processor chip.
I got the board nearly 2 months ago after ordering it in early March. DEC told
me last week that the processor I ordered was no longer available. With Alpha
workstations from DEC we had been working on the basis that the model is out
of date by the time you get delivery. We've just changed that to read 'the
model is out of date if you can order it'. Sigh.

Unless someone else gets to it first, I'll be getting NetBSD to work on
the AXPpci. We've got an application in mind that's crying out for a diskless
AXPpci running NetBSD.
