Speaking of S/36's ... I had an interesting experience a few weeks ago when 
I was in downtown Chicago.

I attended the IBM Chicago Partners Solution Center grand opening and, as I 
was parking my car, I found a bit of discarded junk... a muffler, a pair of 
sunglasses, and a S/36.

The S/36 was stuck in the corner of the parking garage ... and looked like 
it had spent the last 5-10 years there.  It was a 5360 (400mb max).  Aside 
from being dusty, it didn't look to be in too bad shape.  If I had a 
pickup, I would have tried to take it.
