They offered me an E10K with a newer Netra (120 maybe, I forget now) for
$14k today.  I wish I could afford it.

Oh geeze...here I go...

Home stuff:
SS5/170 - Firewall-1 box
SS4/85  - Primary internal DNS (BIND, I don't like views)
U10/440 - Primary MX, webmail, home directories, primary public DNS
Netra T1- Secondary MX, webserver, secondary public DNS
U5 - Eventually will be the 'storage' box (It's got a Symbios card) and
     will be IDE-free!
SS20 - Gathering dust next to the other SS4 and the SS1.  Not sure what
those 3 are going to do, yet.
"The Beast" - It's a cPCI chassis with a couple of CP1500's in it.  Maybe
a redundant fileserver at some point in time if no one buys it from me

And no, I don't think I have enough of them, but the electric company sure
loves me. :/
