  We've been building out some Sun hardware in the museum recently.  I
never realized just how much I miss SunOS4.  A machine with a 50Mhz
processor and 64MB of RAM (SS10) and everything is INSTANT.  Now my
fire-breathing 3.6GHz six-core 24GB RAM monster can barely keep up with
what I ask it to do.

  Yeah, me too.  I'd love to put them in the museum, but we have no way
to get them out here.
