I'm with Phil;
I'd buy it just for the spares for my own - but, like him, no way I can
get any of it back to Iowa at any reasonable expense.
Even if I was able to find a helpful listmember in TX who could deal with
it (and, realistically, who would want to pick up an E10k for someone
else, strip it, box up and ship the innards and then deal/dump the
remainder?)... the most valuable bits - the processor modules or the
originally $500k centreplane - don't exactly ship well.
