Hakujin.Lan is my lan that I have set up at home. I currently have three computers of various antiquity connected to the lan. Solaria is my primary machine which I use daily, and is therfore packed with all the latest equipment. Polaris is my second machine, which was cobbled together out of my pile of spare parts and some donations. I use it as a sort of intranet server and a test-bed for my client-server programming.

Below is a table that compares the hardware installed in my machines.
