   Quit laughing at me: we asked our VAR -- where the "VA" is supposed
to mean "value-added" -- to get us some new CPUs for our 3000 and 3500s,
and the quotes were all for $26,000 and up.
   *sigh* While it's nice to have support contracts, sometimes it's
tough to work in a place that won't use EBay or "gray market" vendors.
