[rescue] Worst rescue [was MY coolest rescue ever, nCUBE2]

I bought a Sun3/160 w 16 or 32MB RAM in 7 foot cabinet.
On top: 9 track tape drive. In the middle: VME card cage. On the bottom:
2 or 3 14" Eagle SMD drives plus an extra one or two - total giggage was
1.7GB I think, may have been 1.3.
Paid about $300 or $500 for it in 1994. It came with the ALM-2 serial
board(s) as well.
I never ended up using it, and because I moved to Denver CO for a few
years, it ended up getting dumpstered ! I wasn't able to boot it after I
screwed up /vmunix (didn't have tapes for it and this was before netbsd
supported it) - learning not to FTP things into / while logged in as root
was a worthwhile lesson, but certainly an expensive one!
I have done better in buying hardware since...most of the time.
