Thanks for all the ideas, Craig! I was already thinking about building my own
to keep mem small. I looked high and low for memory for this box, but no luck,
I have buckets full of old RAM sticks, but nothing fits. It's one of those
old ones that need to be installed in pairs, the sticks are shorter than
all other makes.
