hi dan,

thanks for the info.  that's too bad -- asus has always put out good

it destroyed two IDE drives?!?  how did it do that?

i've been thinking of the tyan S2466-4M, which seems to be popular with
the athlon MP crowd.

i can imagine: every motorcyclist will go down at least once.  our wish
is that when it does happen, it's not too bad.

but the real important question is: how's the bike?!?    ;)

email me offlist if you get the chance.  i think you guys are
mid-quarter, so it must be a busy time for you.
