Web Pages

These Web pages originated in 2001 using the HTML module in Oberon running on a 80486-DX PC. 2004-08-20 the hardware was upgraded to a salvaged Pentium 1. Until the Sparcstation 2 has NetBSD installed, the server is a Toshiba 4000CDS. The machines which maintain and serve the Web pages have negligible value in the marketplace.
