I have a 6GB drive that never made it into my iOpener - I diverted it
into my old Dell laptop, replacing a 2.1GB disk. Due to another toy,
the TuxScreen ("Shannon" telephone), I learned of some 32MB EDO SODIMMs
for $15 that happen to fit the TuxScreen _and_ my laptop, bringing it
up to 80MB total and helping me to work more smoothly on an Open Source
project with heavy hardware DIY -

Yes, as does the Audrey. I've played with QNX in an on-topic sense - the
environmental controls of the Crary Science and Engineering Center (CSEC)
at McMurdo Station are QNX based. I had to debug a network problem
that was forcing the Facilities guys to tweak stuff by hand because their
workstation was knocked off-line and they didn't have spare parts for
the "computer" part of their system, only the "environmental" part (the
problem was a dead NIC, but of a vintage and brand that we had to
seriously scrounge for a spare - all of our desktops had 3C509s or
one of a couple of varieties of NE2000 clone)
