Huh.  Would this be about 10" tall by 26" deep, with the slots tight
together?  The one I've got has IIRC a MVII console bulkhead on the back,
and doesn't have fancy bays for the DSSI drives.  In any case, I don't need
it, if anyone near Columbus, Ohio wants it.  It's been on my List of Things
to Get Rid Of for a while now.
