I've been reading through the old Linux Journal magazines I acquired
from Ben Elliston. One Thing I've noticed is that back then (1998-2000)
there were a lot of ads for ALPHA based systems, from Aopen, VAR, etc.
Every second page almost. What I was wondering is, Did anyone actually
buy an ALPHA system? Were they at all popular? and what are my chances
of picking up a (cheap) second hand one to play with?
I've been playing (working for UNI really) with the SC at the
"Australian Partnership for Advanced Computing" which is a 512 * 4 ALPHA
21264 @ 1.15 GHz, And I like it. ALPHA is good!
Another thing anyone got a spare PCMCIA network card I could
