I just wanted to thank you publicly for all your hard work on this. The community will benefit greatly from this. If I recall, correct me if I am wrong, didn't you also port FreeBSD to the Alpha many moons ago? I loved the Alpha and it broke my heart when it died. Sad panda :(

Doug Rabson did most of the early work on alpha. I sent him enough patches that he sponsored me for a commit bit. My primary desktop for several years was running FreeBSD/alpha. First was an AlphaStation 600, then an API UP1000.

I was very sad when alpha got axed, but I agreed with killing it. FreeBSD is about current hardware.
