In a similar situation here...I graduate in a year, so will end up 
having to move my collection in around that time, so really can't get 
any new aquisitions for the moment...(I really want to finally get a 
larger alphaserver (1200 or 4100) though, since so far my only real 
worthwhile rescue is a Microvax II unless you count a proliant 8500 
with 8x CPUs and a 7 slot compaq external drive cabinet full of Segate 
4.3gb FH disks...sounds pretty impressive when it's all running
