If I could segue to the Octane III...  Is it just me or does it look a 
little weird for a company like SGI to make a computer that's not much 
more than a bunch of standard motherboards?  When I first heard about the 
Octane III, I presumed it was a deskside containing standard-ish blades. 
Or have I misunderstood the machine entirely?
