about licences

And if you want to learn the hardware you often need a lot to really get
into it enough to be even approach becoming an expert.

-Jim has so much stuff his stairway nearly collapsed bring down a UPS
big enough to power it all.
-Pete had 0595s holding up tables in his lobby and tape drives on
shelves in the bathroom before he moved.
-I have 5 IBM Racks full in my garage plus one live one in the basement.

You need a very tolerant spouse!
