  Are you anywhere near western PA?  You're more than welcome to come
by.  The machine (and many, many others) are in a position to be powered
up and run at any time.  Come by and spend a day hacking on stuff.  Good
for the soul.

  Heh.  I gave up on that and got a real building. =)

  I know very little about them.  They do pop up from time to time; one
sold on eBay a month or two ago.  I chased it, but was unable to score it.
