Y'know, sometimes that can be the solution to a problem. When I got a
Micro GX 3000 (HP) a few years ago, I found it was kind of noisy due
to the hard disk in its base. As I lived in a second-floor apartment
this was a problem. So I got a Sun 3/60 as a cold spare for one I was
running at the time, and put it under the 3000. Just the ticket -- it
damped the vibes from the 3000, and I was able to hack late into the
night without complaint.
