I don't have the monitor or keyboard for it, it fails a diagnostic test
(which might be related to the lack of keyboard/monitor), and it's too big
for my collecting tastes (i.e., bigger than a breadbox). Besides, I have
lots of machines that make fine X-terminals, but I still prefer a simple
shell most of the time.

But it's a fine example of an early MIPS box, and the case construction
and power supply are nice and DECish.
