Maybe it was your diagram I got years ago. Someone did a nice 32kw board for 
the 8e using two 2114's I think it was. I have the schematics somewhere 
still. The only reason I didn't build it right away was because at the time 
I got them, the person said "these schematics aren't quite final, there may 
have been some tweaking afterwards that didn't make it to the schematic" so 
I just sat on them.

A known working design - I'd want to build that in a heartbeat :)
