Not to burst your bubble, but *this* is probably the only way to go.

BeBoxen are like golden hen's teeth to find, even in parts.

IIRC, there's a list of BeBox owners out there, tracking where each

Try there first, just FYI though, this hasn't been updated since 2003.

Good luck! I always liked the blikenlights on BeBoxen.
