    Ah, yeah, thought so.  Pity, that box is probably the only one that
    hasn't had any form of hardware failure during its tenure ;-)

    Tried to get the W2K8 one back up on Monday when I had some remote
    hands but alas, no luck.  Think it has balked HDDs or something.

    The Solaris 11 AMD64 one Solaris 10 SPARC ones are back up now
    though and I just cleared out their 700+ build backlogs, FWIW.
