  My firewall is still a P133. I still have the first box I loaded 
Oracle on: a Linux 486 with 16M or RAM running Oracle 7.0 for SCO Unix.

I have a 486 running now, a PS/2 9595 with a token ring NIC:

And, I still have my very first machine: a Compaq luggable 8088. Kinda 
like carrying a suitcase to have a pencil, but cool at the time.
