That would be an excelent idea :)

As usual I'll try to get any ATA/SATA HW that shows up on my doorstep 
working, thats the deal.
I dont have the means nor the motivation to spend my own hard earned $$ 
on all kinds of HW to get someone out there free support, simple as that..

That said, I do have a HT1000 based board around a supermicro H8SSL that 
is used as a busy local fileserver, needless to say it works flawlessly.

So, to get this worked on and hopefully fixed, get me a failing board to 
work on here... private mail with address details etc can be had on
