Plan on reinforcing your floor, even if you don't manage to fill it up.
Those things were small and _heavy_.

The Cray-2 is a wonderful piece of history, but I think it ended up being
just a little too extreme for the time.  Costs were high and margins were
lower than for more conventional supers.  The small production run (21?)
didn't help matters.
