Sorry, I haven't been around long.  Please give me a moment to process
this list...


Okay... better now.

And my wife thinks I'm a nut for having a few ss20s, u1 u2, few peecees
and a 2924XL.  Perhaps I'll show her this post... hehe  Hanging out in
here is making me long for my days at HP Roseville campus.  I used to
friggin marvel at those (V Class?) servers. I just called them Big Ass
Cube(tm).  They looked like something that belonged in the engine room
of the Star Trek Enterprise.

Anybody know the specs on those?

I can see that frequenting this list and working is going to mean I'll
be forming some new bad habits when I get a job ;)  There has been some
great DEC/Alpha deals just in the last month.  PA-RISC stuff is still
expensive mostly, but there has been a few good deals.
