Equipment summary

Primary equipment asset is an antique brain containing a wealth of accrued knowledge and experience gained over a great many years.  

Driven by unique software, this brain is fully functional and only tends to crash once a day, usually around 11pm.  It is self-rebooting first thing in the morning after the standard nighttime defrag routine.  The details that follow may be of more interest to hardware nuts, although it must be remembered that without the application of an experienced and well programmed brain, all the hardware in the world is pretty much useless.  Or to put that another way: It ain’t what you got, it’s the way that you use it.
