I had the main desktop DDR2 mysteriously lose video ( still don't know if it is 
just needing reseating
memory or if the onboard video no longer works or if one of the four bad 
capacitors went too var
awry to still work... lack of time to test..)

Sorry for the formatting

If one prefers DDR2 for a two-cpu-on-lan setup, anyone knows of a very reliable 
source for a pair of mobo/CPU  ?
Not important that anyone answers

Might-be-working-if-reassembled-enough-times-with-legacy-parts pentium 4  and 
DDR2 ( gigabyte amd) motherboards,
... e-waste or send to a FreeBSD developer for test and reuse somewhere?  (each 
run but no video though, amd board
is disassembled... ) 

The only question here I feel the need to address sooner not later is whether 
to duplicate the DDR3 amd system for
in-case-Xorg-crashes-at-dawn backup, or discard the DDR2 board and build/buy 
two DDR2 systems to recreate what
was working about twenty days ago flawlessly... bad capacitors on the 
motherboard notwithstanding.  ( DDR2 amd,
main was gigabyte, backup was msi...  although each without a full range of 
slots vs ATX full size and costlier) 

At any rate is is cathartic to have a fully working v11 vt desktop with sound 
that I had no clue if would work without
RMA, assistance, ... 

One or two items may be omitted from the list above... a 3x5 card has gone 
missing here since yesterday... too much
paperwork in progress.
