Even better, does anyone know of one that is paired with a system image that can be booted from a thumbdrive? Google has not returned anything that seems to fit the bill though, admittedly, my Google-fu is not what it used to be.

The auction includes exclusive Black Mesa media preloaded on the machine, a Black Mesa case decal with the signatures of the dev team members, an honorary Black Mesa developer hoodie and a guaranteed beta testing slot for Black Mesa! They will not be holding a public beta test, so this could be your only chance to see this mod in action before its release.

It'll be interesting to see what happens to these teachers after the charges brought against students in recent months.
