[Computerbank] FYI: new project

Hi folks,

Some people might have seen this already; Sam started the 225q project, 
and now he's started another. CAI might even consider putting in a card

The following is an announcement of a system which is using GNU/Linux to

As a result, we are getting more traffic than normal.

I'd be really grateful if someone who knows how slashdot.org works would
submit an article about this project to them.  Any other publicity,
especially on the Internet, would be greatly appreciated at this point,
now that the website is looking nice and the software is reasonably
