If I had an IRIX box right now, it would be spinning rust or an SSD.  One day I 
hope to have a Crimson and a Fuel.

Any 3b2 is going to be significantly slower.

I still remember when I had my first 600G (not GR) that got upgraded to (3) 327 
Mb drives.  I was very excited that I had *just shy* of 1 Gig of hard disk 
storage space available.

Very different times.
