This E-mail is being run through a server running AIX on a 2-way POWER6

At $10,000 when I bought it (used!) in 2010 ... I, uh, ...

I did get a spare backplane for it recently which was around $1800.

However, the outside backup spool is a VM slice running FreeBSD because I
needed the redundancy; I used to have a peering arrangement with some of
my friends and buddies in different geographical areas but they've all
stopped running their own local hardware.

This may well be the last tank I own and operate. The next iteration might
just be one of those cheap ARM things.
