Friend of mine has a `Cray, Research Machine Inc' plate on his dual-P800
Linux Console box.... Legend has it, he was origianlly offered a whole
Cray (bits of?) but didn't have three-phase power, or any place to put it,
so just took the badge off it instead!

Any, the plague is genuine, and something to die for.
