Here are some of the computers I have built over the years.
Click on the images for larger, more detailed versions.
An 8MB '386, a computer in a drill case, used mainly to prepare
books for the internet
An 8MB '486-66 with two sound cards, used for sound synthesis
and for four-channel sonic holography.
The "motherboard" is in fact just a row of ISA bus connectors;
the main processor and RAM are on a plug-in card.
A 28MB '486-66, the central server of my
web site in 2002.
An 8MB '486-25, displaying screen savers in the front window of the house,
also used as a networked X terminal.
A P133, ex Compaq Deskpro: a stand-alone web-browsing station
or X terminal.
Nekon2 and Neko2
A 500MHz general-purpose computer (the bottom half) used mainly for
the development of Live Linux CDs and video processing, with a
separate 133MHz processor to run the window system (the top half).
Rear views of the main processor, whole unit and video processor.
8 x 400-733MHz Pentiums, 192/256 RAM each + swap,
used for distributed compilation of C and C++,
video compression and clustering Live CDs..
