      Likewise, and I'm sure that goes for many of us on the list.

      I may actually be getting my Rainbow in another week or so. Probably
      not what you were referring to, but I'm primarily an Intel guy. Some
      peeps feel the early IBM-ish stuff isn't vintage, but I poopoo all
      that rot at every oppurtunity. I like Sun :). Even started a group
      for Sun and SGI stuff, but it's dead as a doornail presently LOL LOL.
      There was/is an HP-Apollo unit on ebay, but I'll hold off on
      something like that until I find one locally.

      As time allows, I'm interested in seeing what it would take to get
      Linux to run on an R10000 based Indigo 2. Not likely in my lifetime,
      but we'll see...

      you only owe us your participation. Consider all debts cancelled :).
