hacking in style

Now this is what a computer should look like. Bold, blue, stylish, powerful. If computers in general looked like this geeks wouldn't have such a reputation for being square. (And they might dress better, but I'm not holding my breath.)

I got these last night. A friend of mine called me up and said "hey, I have these sgi's, want them?" The origin is an r10k, and the o2 is an r5k. Thanks to the massively thick fog and the fact that I drive over a 24 mile bridge to get home, I called it a night early enough to have cars to follow in the fog, and spent the rest of new year's eve turning the origin back into a tower from a rackmount setup. It's got a little blue screened door for the front as well.

Here's to a better 2006.
