Here at Ohm Force we have some true geeks. Not those nowadays geeks who think they’re geeks just because they play online, know some css to fine tune their blogs and watch downloaded american TV shows on their iPhones at the subway (newschool fakes driven by mainstream media). Grey Force (aka Eric Cestari) is an oldschool one, geek since the time geeks used to be just nerds, with no girlfriends and a lot of male weird friends. As all true geeks he loves old geek stuff. That’s why he loves their bedside table (“their” because instead of old time nerds, geeks can have girlfriends, or even wifes!). But his Significant Other doesn’t like it that much. So from time to time this bedside table is the cause of some flame war (geeks don’t “argue”, thats for normal people).
Tablefoot is a SGI Indigo with a IP20, a 100MHz R4000SC CPU, blazing 32Mb of RAM, XZ graphic board and a 1Gb hard disk. Of course it was purchased with its 19″ screen, keyboard and mouse. It became a superstar computer since it was used to render T1000 special FX in Terminator 2. Tabletop is a slab, more precisely a NextStation N1100. Inside its magnesium box, there is a 25MHz 68040 processor and a hard disk.
Ok, as a sidetable it’s not that fancy, but if you used to have these machines at 1990, you’d use to be the king of the pimps.
