If the bug is simple, how hard would it be for me to fix it?  Is it

I think the gentleman who was inquiring about the NEC Mips server he had
would be interested in the 4400 SC support, since apparently his machine
is very similar to the Magnum 4000SC.  Oh yeah, does anyone on this list
have a Magnum 4000SC?  If so, do you know how it compares in performance
to the 4000PC?

I hope you enjoy your trip!  Now's definitely the time to travel there,
though--any later and it would be too hot, IMHO.
