 - dual-core amd64, with 4gb ram & 360gb drive.
 - an HP 2133 mininote, handed down from a friend.

Rarely; once every couple of months or so.

Not really.

It was a lucky accident for me as well, though I was less concerned
about it being alive as that it wasn't part of gnome anymore.  I used it
years ago before sawfish went gnome -- back when gnome was using
enlightenment.  When the gnome philosophy seemed to be taking it over I
switched to something else.  I was never entirely happy with anything,
and one day I went to look up sawfish again.  I discovered that gnome
and sawfish had parted ways, and was happy.  :)

Part of me would be happy to see sawfish stop using, but
honestly only because I'd be happy to see sawfish and gnome move farther
apart, not for any technical or practical reason.  So I've intentionally
not spoken up when the issue has been discussed in the past.

I've never fully understood the organization of the wiki -- I prefer
info pages and the mailing list for most things.  But it's true that
things like the scripts need someplace to reside, and the wiki is good
for things like tips-n-tricks, and howto-like stuff.

> 5) Are you planning to contribute?

Yeah, but I'm probably not a very reliable contributor.  I'm not much of
a programmer (just lisp), and I often have a lot of other stuff going on
in my life.
