Maybe the Pentagon is going to use VAX 7800's in their retaliatory strike
for the WTC attacks. They are certainly as heavy as DU rounds :)

Seriously though, a couple of things have come to light in the aftermath of
this event:

         1) VAXen are so reliable that several people keep them
            in production envirionments even today.
         2) When you destroy a facility at large as the WTC and Pentagon
off site backups
            don't help if they only system of capable of running your
backups gets
            destroyed as well.

Only the very serious disaster recovery plans consider the case that the
entire datacenter is destroyed.
