I went to pick up a Challenge XL system. "Oh by the way it's on the second 
floor of the school." No biggie I thought. School have elevators and 
stuff. Nope.

What a pain. I think it dug into the wall at the 90 degree turn. What a 
trooper of a machine. The SGI "iron" is the best iron to kick around at 
home. Rolls around, not insanely heavy.

I got rid of my full rack Origin 2000 and the young kid (who is totally 
into SGI!!!) put it in pieces into a Jeep. Broke it down into parts and 
took two trips. I think he said he was going to NUMA Link it to his full 
rack Onyx2.
