machine. I do seem to regularly be given ppc machines. I do have a G5 that
I don't use very often, as well as a Wii that just needs a drive fix from
what I know. Perhaps put him in touch with me and we can discuss it further.

He seemed to have stumbled across our ppc sound adapter issues when he was
working on i2c stuff and decided to look further into it.
I do not know him personally but from reading his posts on the side I
gathered he was keen to solve stuff and is able to actually do the dev work
that is required.
