The Hartford paper piece reminded me about coverage of SPCR elsewhere: The Dutch magazine Net Professional published coverage of the popular Breadbox PC in their Nov 2002 issue. It may not be online, but they did send us a PDF copy of the printed page. For those who don't read Dutch, the text says:
"Nope, it is not a Herman Brood PC. (note: Herman Brood was a dutch artist, who also painted breadboxes, etc.) Mike Chin had all bits of hardware, hardly any budget and lots of creativity. He got himself a breadbox from IKEA and built this mini-pc. It is not clear yet what Mike his next project will be."
