I always tell people that Big Iron is a journey, not a destination. The fun
and challenge is in getting the machine assembled and running, not doing
anything practical with it. When my wife questions the latest load of
equipment I tell here that it is borrowed from the local computer museum
and that as soon as it is restored and running it will go back. There is a
bit of truth in that statement.
