In early days CPUs were made of STONE, typically of Silicon. Soon followed by more modern types made of WOOD!

Enthusiastic hobbyists often built computers themselves, as is shown in this rare document!

Disclaimer: Please don't worry about those Woodies! Nothing, some wood glue couldn't easily fix! :)

Bryce4. (An Oldie from Nov 2000, then rendered on a "P1", a Pentium 1 with not too many MHz, *g*). Only slightly changed and as larger render on a much faster computer now. Some too obvious flaws in the pliers mesh were cleaned up in postwork. Yep, meshes weren't always too detailed and smooth then!! ;)

Two thousand and what?
That's amazing. And back then the Internet was
a series of tubes. Your humor was perfectly intact
way back then!! Great render.
