It is Forbidden to run my Alpha 2100 during the summer months
unless I get AC, which is a bit problematic where I live now.

Time to Move!  (Yes, I'm working on it.)

Why, oh Why didn't I buy that missile silo when I had the chance?
It was somewhere around 120 acres, with a fenced 40-acre "keep"
in the center with the silo and an airstrip and only 40 miles
or so east of where I work now.  If it were still available for
the $200k asking price from 6 years ago, I'd leap on it and have the
bitchinest data center ever.  Plus you know it already had
heavy duty electric service and bomb-proof facilities.  I bet
I could make all sorts of side cash as a colo, disaster
recovery facility, and secure offsite storage.

Now I'll probably just end up with a house.  *sigh*
