Purpose

Tesla is a general purpose workstation for web browsing, using XChat for IRC, and various activities for use while at the hackspace. It also has a backup RFID Tikitag reader application when the kiosk might be out of order. If you're going to use Tesla for storing files, you shouldn't assume that this is a secure system or that your files are backed up - assume it will be wiped as soon as you leave! Assume that this computer as well as other communal systems are not secure and think twice before you enter in your secured personal info such as login/password combinations, revealing personal information, etc.

If you use this machine for IRC please state who you are when you make a statement - generic 'tesla' comments/questions/complaints often make more sense when others know who you are.
