CUBIX Computer

In 1987, LF/Technologies donated this CUBIX machine to Stargate. Originally intended to uplink Usenet newsgroups, the starcube machine ran UNIX System V release 2 on an Intel 80286 processor. Innovative features included a built-in UPS, 8mm tape drive for backups, 8 serial ports, and cubic shape.

The dumb terminal at right is the console.

When the Stargate project was discontinued, starcube became Thompsonís personal workstation, used for UUCP Zone administration.
