hi again

one thing this miata is missing is the extra cache board by the cpu.

like all classical dec virtual marketing, leave out the feature so
you can sell it later...

i am going to get one of those cache boards in a week or so and measure it

btw: these boxen are coming out of the sandia and lanl auctions in abq
at about $50 each... not too bad.  i am a *long time* dec fan and love
to marvel in the quality construction... (remember decPRO mag?)
