In a way its sad, but the once "wicked fast" IIfx now is regularly scrapped
and the boards, memory, etc. sell fairly cheaply. I think I have about a
dozen working IIfx and a fair stash of memory (sheesh, NEVER in my life did
I think I would have this much memory (all sorts, but some IIfx), a pile
about 2 feet across on my dining room table).

The other stuff just makes me want one or two even more, just not to ship ;).
