When his brother died the man took his brother's ashes from the crematorium and installed them in a Sun SPARCstation by taking out most of the power supply, the hard disk and the floppy drive. He left the motherboard and sockets in to make sure it didn't leak.
What remains is possibly the most technical grave site in existence. It was presented to the family at the wake and people put down their messages for the departed on Post-it notes and fed them into the computer via the floppy port.
The result was a memorial fit for a true geek, and a marvel of inventiveness in the face of family tragedy.
