This is the computer which had formerly been Sparky,
before I got my new Sparky. The motherboard was fried on this computer, and
I purcahsed a new Ultra 10 for replacement. Sometime latter, there was an
Ultra 10 motherboard available on ebay, and I palced a bid. INstalling teh
new motherboard was no morte difficult than doing the same job on a standard
PC, and I soon had a second Ultra 10 computer. The machine has no monitor,
keyboard, or mouse connected to it, and none are needed. I can telnet into
it from my other machines, or use Exceed to log in remotly to the desktop.
Along with a proxy server, there is a firewall, and a pretty good anti virus
program installed. This is the only machine I have, which connects directly
ot the net. There are two network cards in this machine. One connects to
my local network; the other connects to the cable modem, and out to the internet.
The machine, along with Windows 98, has Office 97, communicator,
Norton Anitvirus, with the Proxy X proxy server, and Zone Alarm firewall.
Therer are no other programs,and little need for any. The machine, along
with the web pages contained on it, are backed up regularly, to a file on
my server, and scanned for viruses. I plan to transform this into a Linux
machine, possibly with apache web server, but for now, it remains a Windows
