        They're slightly taller than a typical full tower case, but much deeper
and skinnier. I'd be surprised if they're more than five or six inches wide
across the top.

        The interesting thing about the case design is that they have built-in
rollers at the front and back. Tilt the thing up by one of its handles, and
you can just roll it to wherever it needs to go.

        <wince> Were you at least able to rescue some or all of the VAXen stuff
before it got alley-ooped?
