Yes, you can bring the alpha, I'm thinking about running it as a server
and will be able to snigger at naughty people making http requests which
contain shellcode. I used to see that happen a lot, but not so much
these days.

There's no need to bring loads of them, one would do. Ron was going to
bring me one anyway just in case one or t'other didn't work. I'm not
going to have any use for more than one once that job is done and I
don't want to get stuck with loads of SCSI CD drives!

I'll be bringing you a RISC PC.
