Yep.... I love my old hardware too, bsdunix.net/rush.net (as it used to
be) started on an SS1 running OpenBSD in 1996 or 97 or so, by the hostname
of cygnus.rush.net

Since then I gave my favorite band the rush.net domain and switched to
using bsdunix.net entirely for my own personal use ;)

since then its been on an SS1, a pentium 166, a dual PII333, a dual
PII350, and an E250 :)

my webhosts have been of varying speed/types too, but all ran OpenBSD or
FreeBSD, on either intel or sun hardware.

I personally love my sun hardware, to this day they have been very
reliable (knock on virtual wood)....
