Yes Jespersen, I had Dec alphas - 4 of them to be precise - I could put 16 GB on the motherboards! (just couldn't afford it when it became available in the right size sticks - besides that was after M$ had ditched win for it) - I've only got 1 left intact - the others were scavenged for ram/cases etc. Still got the chips though 666Mhz 21164As - and they were beasts.

This is good news. But my god did it take such a long time!
