Holy crap.  I just looked for Tezros on eBay out of curiosity, and
they're running anywhere from $2100 BIN for a 4x700 with V12 graphics,
2GB RAM, 73GB disk and DVD drive, to $75000 BIN for a 4x800 with V12,
3GB, 1TB Stone Storage (whatever that is; it's new to me), 24" monitor
and a Wacom tablet.

A couple of those listings mentioned 'discreet smoke', 'discreet flame'
... what *are* those?  They sound like codenames for military operations
to me.  I could TOTALLY see a covert op being codenamed Discreet Smoke.
