Back when I was working at G.E. Medical, we had a Sun
derver named Batman. Batman was the manufactuing server, which hosted the
user shares for about 200 people, as well as serving up our data sheets,
and hosting our data base for the manufacturing of our CT machines. Batman
had multiple processors, and was able to hot swap drives, out od a 20 drive
bay. Batmna had dual power supplies, and over a gigabite of ram. Batman was
magnificent, cost tens of thousands of dollars, and was a Sun E450 server.
Batman had a console, a control head, and was housed in our computer room,
with the rest of the servers.

While browsing on ebay, I noticed a number of e450 servers
for sale. These machines are as magnificent as ever; but are now a bit beyond
the curve, and may now be had for quite a bit less money, than what had been
paid for Batman. I have decided to call him Max, because he is a maxed out
version of an E450.
