Yup, I just gave ice.cold.org a brain transplant, it is now running on a
Cyrix 6x86 p150+ chip (120mhz) on a triton PCI/ISA board--we are running
on 16MB non-parity ram right now (I'm unsure as to potential problems).
There are still a touch of slowdowns (noticeable only to me :) because
our root filesystem is an OLD IDE HD.  This lies in our SCSI controller
which doesn't allow booting to a SCSI device (it is also a 16bit ISA
card).  If anybody has a PCI F&W SCSI controller they feel up to donating,
I can swap drives for a F&W SCSI-2 conner 1GB drive ;)

TCD and all of the regular services are online again.
