Aye, we were pricing them to get in one or two for testing,
price does come down quite a bit if you drop back to a 1.3GHz chip,
But its still well outside the range of reasonable price/performance.
We have some opterons in, so will see how they fair out...
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
