Let me cheer you up, $515 for 128MB kit for an AlphaStation 500/333, or
Sparc 5 RAM 32MB $50-100, or Sparc 20 RAM at about $1.50-2.00 per MB. Of
course it's the AlphaStation RAM I need the most followed by at least a
couple sticks of 64MB Sparc 20 RAM. BTW, the Sparc RAM prices listed above
take eBay into account on the low end! Then there is the 8MB VSIMM I want
for my Sparc 20, it's about $240.

Of course I could also use some of the Mac DIMMs you mention for my 8500/180,
since I use it for Audio work.

I'm almost tempted to pickup some PC133 RAM despite the fact I don't need it
and stuff it in my G4/450 (already has 256MB). I could almost use it there
(Photoshop would like it) I don't have any use for more RAM in my Linux box.
