My drawing tool actually refers to that shape as "Application 
Server".  ;)  I just thought it looked good.

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.
