Wow, is that a VIA southbridge? Must have stumbled through both a temporal and a spatial distortion… I can’t quite make out the model number; but that’s verging into “That’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time.” territory…

That aside, I salute the color coordination of the decor with the motherboard; it’s an excellent touch.

My friend Chiron Bramberger did that shoot 11 years ago, and it just keeps going around and around the internet, like a sock in the washing machine. Here it comes again.

Chiron almost never gets attribution, which is interesting/unfortunate. I notice in Cory’s 2009 post he calls him a “Russian casemodder”, I guess because the photos were posted on a Russian language website.
