Prices a dropping like a brick.

Just last week I gave away 3x Ultra 10's (it was whatever 400-ishMHz 
processor was in the U10) to co-workers who want to learn Solaris.  At 
least one of the boxes was a Creator 3D.

It's nice because these are the boxes I was root on earlier in my UNIX 
career but was never allowed to "learn" on.  So my Solaris experience 
was pretty negligible despite all the Sun boxes I was responsible for. 
Now I can finally afford to have some of that same hardware from the dot 
com boom and not worry about breaking some production app.  :)
