   I scored the SX-4B.  Well, actually my (sorta-) boss did, on my  
behalf.  He's in Oshkosh.  I'll let you know how my travel plans  
shape up; I'm putting together a large trip involving two Sun E10Ks  
and two modern Sun big-iron boxen for work; I'll probably lump this  
machine in with that trip.
