It's still in that empty office, but there's also a rack of HP 1u HP
machines in there now.

Something in the memory controller failed about six months, and we
decided it wasn't worth fixing, and so the machine is sitting there.
I think it's still sitting there, or maybe I've just been tuning it's
absense out :)
| Oh wow, Comco's web page hasn't changed in almost ten years.
Well, www.tx.altair.com hasn't, but www.comco.com has :)
