Sweet deal! Dang it, now I've got to find the box mine's still packed in and get back to seeing what other nifty things I can do with it.

Hmmm... POV-Ray should compile on it...

Yah! You can wait three weeks for a render!

K is in Florida today. I'm not relishing explaining this to her... :)

Hey, my first POV-Ray renders were done on an 8 MHz 80286 machine. It was so slow, it caused me to grudgingly fork over the cash to upgrade to a blindingly fast 25 MHz 80306 -- with a floating-point co-processor!

Of course, back in those days, my models (and especially the textures) weren't as complex as they later became... but still, 266 MHz isn't THAT bad. Comparatively.

True enough. A few years back, I was trying to find a Mac SE/30 so I could install Debian 68k on it. That woulda been slow--16 glorious megahertz!
