I'd certainly be interested in such a database, but if the interface to
it is some Web-only horror, I unfortunately will not be participating
at all actively.

For my own part, I'm mostly a Sun person, concentrating on the period
from late sun4c to the early sun4u. I'm mostly not interested in
anything without an MMU or otherwise incapable of running some flavour
of Unix, but not totally - for example, I have a 68hc11 development
board I wouldn't mind another one of.

I'd love to get hold of anything that runs four-year-old NetBSD that I
don't already have an example of, especially if it's a CPU architecture
I don't have, notably mmeye/evbsh3 (the Super-H SH3) or pc532.

I'd also particularly like to hear of HP-IB disks of nontrivial digital
size and reasonably small physical size, as I have an hp300 that's been
gathering dust because I have almost no disk for it - or anything
equivalent, such as a converter between HP-IB and something commoner
such as IDE or SCSI.

I also have a small number of Sun cards (mostly third-party) which are
useless to me for lack of documentation, and I would love to find out
anything anyone can tell me about them. I can't compose a list at the
moment (I'm not near the cards), but if such a database is to be kept
somewhere I can certainly make such a list.
