The end of an era





This computer, P4 2.0 with 512 Megs of rdram, was constructed in 2002. Since then, it has played (and won most of) 20,000 games. Some of the hardware will be added to the Museum of Modern Art, the rest may be retained and buried with my ashes in space. But most of it is going on the street to find a new home. Perhaps it will land in a 2nd rate Chinese restaurant and compute Dim Sum orders all day. Maybe it will host a 4.75 TB anime collection. Or perhaps it will never work again, and will explode into a ball of fire if anyone else tries to cold boot it.
