I'm a mainframe collector. If I have parts of my collection on the second
floor of the building in which I live, and there isn't an elevator, it
will suck. I have several machines which would crush a minivan.
Forklifts aren't really worth the effort. Give me a truck with a liftgate
and a 20T GVW, and I'll be a happy man.

Peace... Sridhar
