A nice clean one, too. With 4 days to go, I imagine it'll be bid up to between $150–200.

BTW, we usually refer to these as "F-AT", since FAT means something else (it's a file system).

I purposely referred to this as FAT as a lame pun I guess.

Yo, that's some IBM FAT fo sho... :))

Sweet looking board.  I can't believe they command that much now.  :eek:  I remember just a few years ago they were well below $200.  (Or my memory was bad--one or the other  ;D)

Oh, LOL. I can't speak for everyone, but I love file-system-based puns—always have, always will.

Nope, your memory's fine... Just late last year they were still around $100, but it was clear they'd being going up quickly. Wish I could've talked my wife into buying a few.  :?|

But what’s wrong with inequality, anyway? Answers to this question are rarely satisfying, but they do serve as a political litmus test about the kind of inequality that matters. A Marxist might concern herself with how economic inequality divides society into classes, allowing capitalists to wield wealth as a weapon, disempower workers, and extract their labor. The humanitarian position tends to prioritize sufficiency of resources and basic rights; feminists, environmentalists, and advocates for the undocumented, the disabled, and minorities would say social inequalities matter, too, and that part of the problem with economic inequality is that it reinforces them.
New research has shown us that economic, social, racial, and gender inequality are inextricably linked—and that the effect of high inequality is to create even more inequality. Many other economists have shown that high levels of inequality hurt democracy because, among other things, they allow rich people and corporations to buy the support of politicians.

On the plus side, it's good to see so many people getting rid of their FAT. (Early New Year's resolutions?)

Yeah, saw that—wonder what happened to the tabs? Did they pry the case open without a hex driver, and broke 'em?
