Recently on the OpenBSD Misc discussion mailing list Theo de Raadt
asked about getting some Alpha hardware:

"Just before BSDCAN, someone from Ottawa or Montreal offered to donate an alpha. I have found a developer who needs that machine now, but have lost the mail ... so I don't recall who it is. If you can, please get in touch with me again."

If we can't find whoever offerred in Ottawa, maybe someone else can step forward with a spare box?

    Well, if he's living in holland he can pickup my DEC3000 anytime.
    It's complete with original OSF/1 cd's inc. Licences / docs & 22" back-braking monitor
    But thats (alpha or not) prob. not what he is waiting for.
    It makes my sparcstation 5 looks like a supercomputer.

    I have an old Alpha Server that he can have... no install media, and currently running OpenBSD v3.4... hasn't been powered up in 3-4 months... go here: for the dmesg

    I have a) a multia, and b) a PWS-500a (500MHz EV5) with no ram, hard drive or cache module. Want either?

    It's good that you guys are offering hime these servers and all, but does Theo even check this site? I hope you guys are emailing him too and not just posting, hoping he'll drop by and post back...

    Just my $0.02.

    Just guessing, but he is in MTL and has a couple of Alpha boxes, could it be jfb@ ? I don't wanna assume he proposed to give one out but hey may be able to if you ask him gently ;)
