A good gesture accompanied by insights of the time when they built reddit.com can be found on eBay
"This is the laptop he literally slept with for a number of months while the site was still unstable *cough* written in Lisp *cough*. He'd been using it up until just the months before our acquisition last year (those new Macbooks came out, don't ya know?). Somewhere along the way, the latch stopped closing all the way, so his 15" Powerbook has been pimped out with a piece of velcro -- old school style -- to keep the lid shut.

My 12" Powerbook has been covered with reddit (and a few other) stickers and was the place where every single reddit logo (archive at redditalien.com) had been doodled until only a month ago. Pure touchpad, baby."

Wanna buy one of those?

Lost the chance baby.....
