I live in a rural area too. My mother-in-law had a stroke a few years back. By the time the ambulance got there, loaded her up, started the IV, and got to the hospital, the time had elapsed to give her whatever that anti-stroke drug is. Now she's paralyzed on her left side. Don't tell me distance isn't a factor...

I still have a couple high-end cassette recorders that haven't seen use for at least 20 years. That was the thing back in what the 80's? I used to buy blank metal tape and record all my albums onto cassette to listen to in the car. That was bitchin' quality back then ... until CDs came out which pretty much killed cassettes for cars. Maybe I will have the chance to sell these recorders for something...

..On a different note, who were the people still buying SGI to give them a half billion revenue? What exactly do they sell - it's not like one can buy Irix based workstations or servers anymore, or even Linux ones, from what I understand.

Remember, SGI is not the SGI of old. Rackable bought SGI (Silicon Graphics) and the renamed the company SGI. So I imagine most of the product line was heritage Rackable?
