    Nope, he scrapped it the next day. It's on it's way to China now. :-(
Art has some fiber drives but I don't know if he'll part with them. I'll
probably see him today. If I do I'll ask. Sorry I haven't answered your
messages soooner. We went and picked up three more loads yesterday and I
didn't get back till late. I'll try to pack the CD drive and get it in the
mail today.

   BTW we got a SGI Onyx Reality Engine2 yesterday. It's HUGE!!!!! I'm
taking Bob R. out to look at it this morning.
