Yes Boris... I too looked at those chassis.  One of the guys (not  
Boris)... originally tried to smarm it up the first time I looked at  
their stuff.  I walked away and came back on the other side... The  
other guys including Boris were really quite nice and helpful... I came  
back later to the original side and the smarm guy was also helpful...  
so go figure (I guess he figured out the first time that I knew some of  
what I was doing)

I got that REALLY nice B2000 from them.

$250.  Decent config... only a few scratches.


and remember: a CRAY is the only computer
that runs an endless loop in just four hours ...  --Snarfed from a forum
