  OH-MY-GOD... I guess it's time to hunt for a better Octane and give
  my old one (~400 EUR in 11/02, 2xR10K/175, 512MB, 9GB, SI) away as
  long as I still get a reasonable amount of money for it. Makes
  probably much more sense than buying parts to upgrade.

  In my notes I have that SI + SI, SSI + SI, MXI + SI and SE + SE,
  SSE + SE, MXE + SE work (and are considered "safe"). No info about
  mixing I-/E-style boards, so I'm also quite curious. :)

PS: Did you get my mail?
