A good friend worked at Cray headquarters here in Minnesota back in the
hey-day for Cray.

I got to go down on the main data center floor where they had one of just
about everything Cray made. It was like geek Disneyland :-)

The same friend got a donated (read 'ready to be thrown away') Sun 4/280 as
the first box for what was then the Northfield, MN Free-Net. We proudly kept
the Cray property stickers on that guy.

I don't know what's out at headquarters now; it was pretty much a ghost town
after Tandem/SGI/whoever took over.
