And thank you again for that donation!   We should have another conference at that place - I remember it was unusual to have a conference at a location that also supplied tools for hacking our Librettos. :)

I believe those original funds purchased a Pentium Pro system of fairly reasonable configuration.  As Julian says, however, the individual parts were replaced over the years, including the motherboard, and the freefall of today likely bore little resemblance to the one we purchased at the local PC shop in Walnut Creek, California!
