Need. :)

Oh, ugh.  Burn that one.  Slow pain in the ass.  It's a 42P.  It'll run
Linux okay.

Speedy boxes.  If I didn't already have someone offer one to me, I'd
take it.

I don't think I've seen a 380 that looks like that.  I don't think I've
even seen a 7012-??? that looks like that.  That looks like another
F-series system, possibly an F30.  If you had a picture of the back, I
could tell you for sure, but I'll just look at them in person whenever
we test/clean/trade.

Shucks.  Kountry Mike would've gotten himself all messy for those.  He's
tormenting himself doing video on a junk old no-name 20".

Very, very nifty.

Yeah, yeah.  That's why I want to get the garage cleaned out and make it
into the computer room.  If it doesn't fit in the garage (with room
enough for me to move between racks and have a decent desk), I won't
own it.
