Admittedly, I didn't setup that Tahoe node, though I've powered it up
once to poke around (long time ago -- months).
I think it's just setup with the software, ready to add to a public
grid or as a Noisebridge-private storage node.
What I *don't* know is whether or not there is any data on there that
should be saved.
I seem to remember Leif knowing more about it's pedigree. I'll CC him on this.
