For the Douglas Adams fans out there...


I have an IPI tray at home somewhere... never powered it up. At the time I
was amazed at having 5GB of diskspace, even if it was 70+ pounds and
required 20+ excedrin to move.

Turns out it had a reserve over $250 it seems. Too bad. Probably worth it
even without the heavy metal though.
