    Default Weitek PowerUp stickers?

    I've come into a couple of Sparc 2 machines, and both have Weitek PowerUp processors in them.

    The have case stickers on the front, like this:

    Mine are in the about same condition.

    Anyone have some spares they would part with, or the skills to make new ones that I could print out?

    Does good images of the sticker / log exist? And perhaps the measurements?
    It doesn't look like it would be too hard to whip up something reasonable in InkScape for example.

    Yeah, you could pretty easily create a vector representation of that in a half-hour or so, other than not knowing what the S looked like.

    I'd buy some! Shouldn't cost much to have them run at e.g. StickerMule, their stickers are die cut and can be any shape. I think they're all vinyl though, looks like the original was some sorta paper. They're running all sorts of specials at the moment.

    Here's the best picture I could get. I can't find an example on-line...

    Measurements are 2.5 centimeters along the right angle legs, and 3.5 cm on the hypotenuse, or 3.54 cm if you want to be all Pythagorean about it

    a fairly clean example of the Weitek logo is here.
