[ale] Hardware available

I wish I was somewhere near you. Sounds like this would make a great
testing lab! I'd encourage those of you nearby to grab the hardware as fast
as you can, contact whatever open source projects you love, and see how to
build test bed servers. With so many projects critically short on people
and resources, even setting up a couple of servers to download the code and
run regression tests would help.
