My drawing tool actually refers to that shape as "Application

Anything would do, the more "shock value" the better, if you know
what I mean. Ideally, I'd like to have some obscure hardware just to
show, yes, it runs on *that* and then something quite familiar to
people, so the Ultrasparc fits that objective.
I'm in Ottawa, where are you?
FWIW, I did install FreeBSD on an Ultrasparc a while back...but
that's not what we're talking about here.
