Having found and bought the 90% Unobtanium QBUS SCSI card myself that 
sounds like a very cool way to make my MV II rack friendly and not so 
power hungry.

Though now that I have the space and current available I have to boot it 
with the RA82 just once - especially if the neighbors are in the 
driveway next door.  "It's a moral imperative."  ;-)
