General Information


HETG hardware at XRCF
An Ultra, zalgar, connected to the ASC data system network is on the HETG 3rd floor desk. In Pinky and the Brain the alien character Zalgar tells Brain "Through clever use of e-mail I've lured you here to eat your cerebrum."

HETG also has provided an IPX (rowland.msfc.nasa.gov) w/9Gb drive and DAT. This system is attached to the internet to allow out-of-XRCF communication. It was setup at MIT by our guru (and photographer!) Kenton.
