All the DG Nova people (I left my list at home):
Yep, I still have them, they're in a box in the corner of my room (buried
behind other stuff), each wrapped in antistatic bags. Work and other projects
have prevented me from getting to them, but I have a 4 day holiday weekend
that I'm spending organizing my pile of computer parts into keep, sell, and
give away piles. With any luck, I'll get to Nova boards sometime over the
weekend. At the very least, I need to email the lucky recipients and
reconfirm what people need.
