Boole is named after George Boole who was instrumental in differential equations and algebraic logic and ultimately leading to Boolean Algebra.
Boole is a 1U Intel Atom machine (Nexcom DNA1110) running pfSense 2.4. The original hard drive used during 447 Hackney Road was replaced with an SSD as it was dead and we also wanted a router with as few moving parts as possible.
Boole's purpose is providing routing and network uplink services via its four gigabit ethernet ports. It provides DNS, DHCP, and firewall services to the network.
