Wisconsin beer, see <>. Good stuff for $5.20
a six-pack of bottles. Just to keep it on topic, it's not far from
Cray Research in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Cray's web site doesn't
advertise a real tour but there's a virtual one. Leinie's has a real
tour with free beer. And if you're touring, don't forget the pie at
the Norske Nook in Osseo.

Perhaps Someone should make a web site with reports of classic
system sale prices, in order to balance the tales of $500 PETs

be considered: rarity, condition, history, etc.
