While on the subject of buying MIPS boxes, I've had a hell of a time
trying to contact Siemens-Nixdorf to buy an RM200.  I've sent e-mail to
five different addresses on five separate occasions for the past two weeks
and I have yet to receive a good response!  The addresses I contacted in
Germany referred me to their California office, from which I never got a
response.  Does anybody know if SNI still sells RM200's and, if so, how
much they cost?
