Whaaa? That's actually something a little bit different; I didn't even know
there was such a thing as a TOAD-2.

Does anyone here know how many units of the TOAD-2 were ever sold? Who
bought them?

That board looks so close to mini-ITX form factor... they should start
selling them bare... it would look great next to my Atom boxes!!
