I would like to know if anyone has information
about the PC board from DEC that I read about in the March number of BYTE?

In case you missed it here's a recap of my wet dreams:

- A 'complete' board for AXP 21068 or 21066 (up to 200Mhz (CPU not included)).
- Fast SCSI-2 on board.
- 4 ISA slots.
- 2 PCI slots.
- Parallel port.
- 2 serial ports.
- 1 IDE interface.
- Keyboard and (optional) mouse connections.
- Cache up to 1 Meg (no mem. incl.)
- 4 SIMM sockets (no mem incl.)
- and more....
------------------
PRICE: < 500 $ !!!
------------------

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.............

So all you have to do is ?:

- Wait until May (when it's supposed to be available).
- Connect a hard drive, keyboard, terminal (or graphics card and monitor),
  powersupply and fan....
- Install CPU, memory and cache....
- Do a mighty hack to get a useful OS (UNIX of course).

.... and you're raring to go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So do you now anything that could wet my apetite a little more?
