Wow, that's really bad timing. I have only just (in the last 4 weeks) 
cleaned out the 'history cupboard' and pegged a US Robotics Total 
Control (?) chassis fully loaded with PRI and 56k modules, a Cisco 3640 
with digital modem modules, the very down and out AS5200 and all the 
rest of the crap^H^H^H^H stuff left over from the early 2000's... I 
fired the AS5200 up and marveled at the limitations of the 11.2 IOS 
without any IPv6.

I had a few moments of silence to honor the technology of old.
