offlist: lucent springtide & hitachi an-1000 experience(s)

Can anyone who is knowledgeable and possibly willing to help with these
devices please contact me off list ?

A colleague acquired a small number in a sale and they sounds really
cute / useful, but before even playing with them I would love to here from
anyone with wanrings / tips / etc. Especially the BGP side (if these have
that license - not checked yet).
