Thought so myself :(

Will do so.

It's older than a year :( I don't know if that matters, but my company
is in Germany and we bought the hardware from Sun Germany. In Germany,
warranty has to be 2 years - or is this only for endconsumers?

Is there some website, where I could key in something (serial number?)
and it would tell me, if I still have warranty?
