Geek’s Remains Stored In Computer Casket

Posted By Ben Goulding, 1 October, 2009 | permalink

I’m sorry to start off today’s posts on a slightly morbid topic, but this story is about probably the most hardcore geek that ever lived, so I had to give him a mention.

The family of a geek who recently died have stored his remains inside a converted PC and invited friends to attach post-it note tributes. While those who wanted to keep their words private could just slip their note into the case through the floppy slot.

The epitaph is an apt Star Trek quotation that he repeated shortly before his death: “Beam me up Scotty, I’m done here”.

The classic computer – a type of SPARCstation that was discontinued in the 1990s – now carries a plastic plaque bearing his name, Alan, and the dates of his birth and death. (Flickr Stream).
