   If you're getting Model 95 MV3100s for $20 you could be making a
fortune off eBay. I think you're thinking of the M10, M20, and M30
units that *are* common as dirt, about as cheap as dirt, and about 1/4
as fast as the M95, with half the memory capacity.

   Since I have drive sleds, a couple of tape drives, and more 4GB disks
than I can count, this was a very nice grab.

   And if anybody on the list does have an M90, M95, M95A, etc, I know
somebody who'll gladly pay what I just paid for another one.
