   I rather happen to like my "Netra NFS" (aka "Enterprise 150")
that's really an Ultra-1 under the covers with an integral 12-
bay disk array in the front.  It's actually quite a nice little
machine.  It's been through a few upgrades over the years (4-gig
drives to 9 Go, to 18s now, and 512 Mo of mainstore), and is
really very adequate for my needs.

   It does take a while to patch the thing, though.  The latest
8_Recommended cluster took about 3 1/2 hours....
