List of Computer Hardware Used in Producing Kamat's Potpourri
We have a local area network that includes seven computers (each named after famous scientists -- Curie, Einstein, Newton, Sprague, Turing, Edison, Knuth, and Pascal), a Laser printer (named Armstrong), a Color Laser (named Kodak). All of them running operating systems from Microsoft (Windows 98, Windows NT and Windows 2000, Windows XP)
I use a Palm V (with a keyboard) to jot down notes and ideas as they come to me.
The production web server is custom Intel box with 1GB of RAM and 60 GB of disk. It runs Red Hat Linux. It is hosted by Spry.
We use a Microtek scanner to scan the photographs. I also use a Olympus Camedia digital camera.
Why two of us (the senior Kamats do not use computers) need seven computers ? -- one is a software development machine, one is a network server, another is a picture server, one is used for scanning, and the others are used for playing.
We also use Playstation2 for playing.
Each one these computers are connected to the Internet via a ADSL line.
