And when you do in the next 6-12, Mr. Brown, would you allow these orphaned
boxen to be rescued by some starving student or researcher?

I'm still running useful code on 400 MHz boxen here in exactly that

rate tends to crank up at that age, and the human cost of hardware
maintenance is our LARGEST expense by far in our bleeding-edge efficient
admin environment).  We'll probably retire them all in the next 6-12 months.
