The computer that spawned a friendship.
This was my first old UNIX workstation, courtesy of my friend Toby Thain. It has a lot of sentimental value since I had received it the first time I met him. We had previously exchanged e-mail addresses after he rang me while I was working at an electronics shop. We ended up in a long conversation after I discovered that he was a fellow computer collector. Not long afterwards he offered me this SPARC, and we were friends ever since.
It's for this reason that this box will never leave my hands.
