Holy cow! You, my new best friend, have inadvertently been given a key to the Cupertino campus. Dress corporate casual, go there, and check on His Jobsness' progress with the new ACDs and tablet.

Seriously, that's a kick-awesome key. I don't know what it's to, but if you don't need it, how much do you want for it?

It's the old key to the RDF generator control panel......

which has long since been upgraded to the 60Thz/84x dynamically symmetrical-core matrix-based Ultra-Super-Grande Mac Pro, which only Steve knows how to log onto

I'd say it must be a key to a Quadra 950 or some other Quadra or perhaps a server from the early-mid 1990's.

Man I know I've seen one, and I'm pretty sure I've had a couple in my junk drawer at work, but I'll be damned if I can remember what it's to.

Hmm. Now that I think about it the Quadra's keys were lighter colors weren't they?

I think one can bee seen on the left side of the dock below:

That was a hard pic to find. Apple doesn't have any pics, and neither does Google. Finally found it in an ebay advert for a Duo dock.
