So the next time I am moving my J210 around the office and swearing up a
storm, I really need to be swearing at drum storage era computer gurus.
`Thanks guys.`

On that note, I have an HP J210 in Fayetteville, Arkansas that could use a
good home with concrete floors.  It has 2 PA7200's running at 120MHz.  I
have bumped her up to 1.4G of RAM, and shoe horned a 36GB IBM onto the
narrow SCSI interface.  On that drive is installed a running Gentoo 2006.1
install.  It is unstable with SMP, so I don't run it.

If someone local can come pick it up, then they can have it and a 16oz Dr.
Pepper.  If you want me to mail it to you, I will expect shipping.
