I saw these in the office of a very prominent CIO today - just had to take the pics ;) Both the boxes were still brand new - all wrapped and plastic sealed - not even surface scratches on the plastic seals. Amazing!

(Note: If you are a South African and ever installed or configured the red box're at least in your late 30's - nope, I'm not!)

Geez...massive flashbacks to my days working on the 24th floor of Telkom Towers South with Gideon, Rico, Christo, Pierre, Danie, Clinton and the rest of you old timers - how times have changed...and for the better! I don't miss sitting with 35 floppies and another 30 stiffies (hard disks) at it all...and discovering disk 29 unreadable!
