Some meaningful information for those, who will decide to buy:
http://www.ipadd.de/hypercube_eng.html (contains “goals” section, which this seller copy & pasted);
http://www.christopherschultz.net/projects/qube/ (software related info, dedicated to Cobalt/NetBSD);
http://home.comcast.net/~zeusenergy/cobalt/cobalt.htm (some strange mod conversion to fit RaQ2 into typical SOHO- router box);
http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?p=7342938#p7342938 (someone’s question on Nekochan about possibility to break-in video option into Qube 2).

It doesn’t seem to be available anymore, I presume it was sold (though, unlike eBay, Marktplaats.nl doesn’t really make that clear).
