I have a couple of each around, as I always grab the $1 mac modem cables
when I find them... but "hard to find" takes on an entirely new meaning in
my apartment. Some days I can't even find the cat.

I've heard about them, but this is the first I've seen in the flesh, as it
were. I love my Cycle Quad (upgrade for Ultra 2, turns it into a compact
420), and this one should make a nice wee storage/netservices box. I got a
SunSwift card with it, and will probably throw either a FSBE or DSBE in
depending on what I use for storage.
