I was always under the impression that a few of them made it out there?

I have a TT030 and actually was just looking at it last night. It has a 
VME slot (as they call it) that has a dual serial port board installed. I 
think it has a modem port. I know it's not compatible with normal ST 
softwar,e has VGA, does not use a ps2 keyboard but uses an ST keyboard, 
and has real SCSI versus ACSI!

Strange computers. Doesn't look quite as cool as the Mega 2/4 IMHO but 
still interesting!
