hardware reality

This web server is being run on a headless Mac LC, otherwise known as danita.pairoducks.com, tucked away in a closet. The software is MacHTTP 2.0.

The original Mac LC is an mc68020 machine, with a 16-bit bus and a single, 16-bit "processor direct" expansion slot (which in this case is occupied by an ethernet card). Danita has 10MB of RAM and a 40MB hard drive; the drive is accessable via Appletalk, which allows modification of these web pages from a remote Macintosh.
