Yes I am willing and able to help in any way needed!

I just need to grab a PLCC32 puller and another 2+MB chip. Sources on the
chip? I will try to order one tomorrow.

I have an ITE IT8716F-S Super I/O chip. Looks like it is fully supported.
Do you have a null-modem cable for serial debugging output?

I look forward to hearing back from you and having the chance to help on
such a great project as this one. I will do whatever I can to help! I have
very basic programming skills in C++ but am a little rusty and so could

Thank you for your response and your time,
