I'm waiting till we start chucking our 10s 20s 4s and 5s,  but thats
not likely to happen until the summer.

We just flogged 4 of them for 2500 gbp, I wasnt allowed to skip them
as apparently they are worth money.

But they want silly money,   example  800gbp for a sparcstation2, 64mb ram,
1gb disk, cg3 gfx and 17" monitor.  Fortunately I have managed to get
three of these my work by supplying the skip!
