tor.ch was running on an old lunchbox, a SPARCstation LX with as much as 32 MB memory. This oldtimer was built by Sun and was still running fairly well for its age (Apart from the GR*-(XX*# loud fan) until June 13 2002, when it died without saying farewell at all.

Luckily, taridium.net and ncode.ch provide space and CPU power on Sun AMD64 hardware for us now.
