Hehehe, will do.

Right now I'm grappling with the fact that they didn't clear the login, so I
can't get on the machine. But I found some instructions on how to get around
that, I'm just waiting on my CD-ROM drive so I can actually do it.

So I picked myself up a Sun SPARCStation IPC + keyboard + monitor for $17.

I got a couple of external hard drives off eBay, and I'm bidding on an
external CDROM drive (it did have a SCSI port). I made a mistake with the
hard drives, though... first off, I bid on the 200mb one before I checked
the sellers other auctions and saw he had a 520mb drive (which is why I'm
getting 2), and I also failed to notice he was in Canada, which means I'm
paying almost $35 in shipping for $9 worth of stuff... ah well, live and
learn, I guess. I also didn't realize how big these drives are (package is
40x45x45cm). So that didn't help.
