We would have 35 captive beta testers at a time.  It will give them and 
me something to do!

I can test two platforms.. SUNOS and Apollo Domain OS.  The sun is a t3 
and the apollo is a t2 I believe.

I have experience with MERC and I have also worked with Circle, LP 
(Amylaar), and Gama Dikucode.

I will have, and we can talk about how long you want to test.  I can test 
on the Apollo from now until the cows come home.  The machine is idle.  
The test run on the Sun platform can run 3-4 weeks.  I can also provide 
accounts for you so you can tinker with the port as it runs... only if 
you wish it. I know you and what you are about. 

I also will not be making many changes to the code in the test.  I really 
am not looking to 'port' it to my needs.  I think I am too deep into 2.20 
to change.. but I do have a 3200 player base to test on the thing.. Those 
folks are gonna be bored the next 3 weeks.
