Pantemporal Kow

There's an interesting story behind the 1999 Pentium II-400 box I have now put Windows 2000 on. I'm setting up as a legacy system (to be kept in a "mid-2001 state" for the rest of its useful life). Its name is a bilingual pun and a quadruple entendre.

Meet Kow:

  • Formerly Orome, the Vala whose cattle were known as the Kine of Araw

  • A Gateway E4200

  • A bulky and slow machine

  • "Da kine computer"
