If you want 11 (? IIRC) of these boards, drop me an email. Don't worry
about the dismantling of the ELCs, I already did that (CRTs died on
all but one of them) and kept the mainboards and the little "stub"
boards that have the interfaces on them.

I've just acquired an SLC (cheers Martin!) so I'm going to need one to
upgrade that, but anyone who wants them (and wants to build a cluster
out of them ;) is welcome to the others for the cost of shipping.
