You gota admit, theres something sexy about a big purplish-red 
4D/220GT Twin Tower.  Ran one at a previous job unitl it literally
died (and we kept a fire extinguisher next to it at all times).  My
first SGI was a 4D/35.

Got a 3/260 and matching SMD drive cabinet enclosure in my garage; 
anybody want it?  (no, I wont ship...)  Altho, the 3/260 wins the
award for "ugliest" Sun machine....
