Hi Joe,

Cool finds! Wish I could get down there for a few P3 systems. Faster
than anything I have here. Any chance you could grab be a fast one (or
two... ) for me and maybe some sdram sticks and a few IDEs?

How'd the radio rallly go?

Oh, that Hyundai Sparc.... Sparc archetecture was open source from the
start and a few companies made some early Sparc machines.. neat find.
