Really? I saw a few conflicting points on that, but I would not doubt you as sites like this often have organic and messy code bases. I would be glad to help, I didn't see any join pmdev information tho, where is it?
As far as hardware goes, if some were donated would PAIR allow installation? What hardware is in use now? Is there some documentation about this around?
I did disable my nodelets, which helps a little bit but not much.
I am seriously honest when I say I would contribute and use this site more often if it were not so infuriatingly slow. BTW, this is not criticism, it's an observation and I am willing to help (aka not just complain).
