In 1993, when we spun up our first Linux box, we named it 'mercury',
it was the closest to a Sun we were going to get at our little community
It was a re-purposed Novell server, a 486DX-50, 32 MB RAM and 1 Gig HD,
beefy system for the time, and the CS dept was ecstatic that they now
access to a Unix-like system in addition to the VAX/VMS that they'd been
using up until then.
