You could send me the memory from your DS10. I have a DS10 around
without memory and cannot even switch it one; I could but wouldn't this
be very senseless? But at least my AS1000A is still running (a mix of
AlphaCore and recompiled FC/FE development rpms) - I'm wondering this
beast will never die I expect. :-)

Seem most good ol' alpha boys give up their work on the blue (and grey)
boxes. However it's great that there's still CentOS and AlphaCore who
maintain a stable distribution.

:-) I don't expect there's still some machine running it!?
