The "Coelacanth-PC"
October 06, 2004

Geir Ergoy felt his old ATX computer was a dinosaur, ready for extinction. But electronic evolution can take some strange turns. After excavating a fossilised transistor TV, his Mini-ITX inspiration hit like an epoch ending asteroid. The result? Good Norwegian wood gone bad! Just like the once long lost Coelacanth, (or is it cola-can-th?) something old, is new again. Plus now we know what they do during those long Norwegian nights. Now if we can just find those old rabbit ears....

Disclaimer: Ripping into a television can be deadly. Lethal voltages can remain in television capacitors for extended periods of time. Consider yourself warned...
