	Unless one of the other offers has panned-out...
	I have three in a RAID array I'm planning on retiring "when I can  
get around to it":

root at server:~# smartctl -i /dev/sdb
smartctl version 5.37 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-6 Bruce  
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

Model Family:     Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 family
Device Model:     ST3320620A

	I'm in Sydney now and likely back in Canberra this weekend, but  
there's a chain of things that have to happen first:
	* I've got to get a new 1TB drive for box "A"
	* Migrate data in box "A" to new disk & swap
	* Migrate RAID data in box "B" to box "A"'s old drive
	* Do a superficial wipe of one of the Seagate disks.

	It's not a guarantee I can get all or even some of these things done  
before the weekend's out, but whenever it happens, you can have one  
of the old drives to fiddle with.
