Well, I lost the first Ultra-10 I had within 10 days of it's arrival.

The early IBM PCI 133mhz Power PC boxes had wierd problems without logging
any errors in the errorlog. OS patches fixed that one around AIX 4.1.3.
Following a board swap my machines ran for a year without a crash.

Most of my Ultras have been pretty relable as far as hardware.


      Three things never anger: First, the one who runs your DEC,
      The one who does Field Service and the one who signs your check.
