Lazarus: An 8-year-old eMachines that used to belong to my in-laws.
Conrad: A Mac mini that will share a monitor, keyboard, mouse and possibly speakers with Lazarus via a KVM switch.
Lucy: A MacBook that I will probably have up for browsing wikis, etc. during operations.
Danielle: Crazy human attempting Operation Lazarus.
Mr. Williams: Crazy enough to still be married to Danielle; primary user of Lazarus when he was new.
Lazarus was the first new computer that Mr. Williams ever had at home, so there is some sentimental attachment. When the in-laws got a new computer about a year and a half ago, they asked if we wanted the old one. Since I like to play with computers the way car hounds like "project cars", I jumped at the chance. Until now, I've lacked either the time or the space to start this project. Now I'm ready to get started. Watch this space for status updates.
