WHAT?  Man, I just moved all my stuff *onto* a 6-CPU (336Mhz) E3K.

Of course, there's the "its two or more years old, its depreciated off
the books, get rid of it" mentality - which resulted, last night, in
me bringing home a pair of matching Dell P991 19" Trinitron tubes with
pictures that look like they're brand new.  For $5 each.

Anybody want to buy a six-month-old Dell M992 19" flat-screen CRT, cheap?
