I got a DEC from someone on the list (albeit a little old). A while
back, was never able to use it due to the distinct lack of keyborad
mouse monitor that would work with it.
Was considering running it headless, but installing the os would be
problematic with that. :(

oh, well..

Thoghu i have built and used some quad 1.6ghz opteron systems
recently, 2Gb ram and 512Gb HDD space. Used them as workstations.
Though they put on windowsxp and fell over every ten minutes (i didnt
get to choose the hardware)

Theres no place like ::1
