How it works

A server in the server room (`revbank.ti`) runs This is the thing that actually stores the data.

A computer + screen + keyboard + led strip + barcode scanner is actually just a thin client, which simply `ssh bar@revbank.ti` automatically on boot.

Potential improvements

  • Replace the computer with something smaller. Note that the current screen is VGA, so a Raspberry Pi alone won't do.
  • The led strip is broken. When plugged in a PC it blinks cyan for a fraction of a second, but nothing shows up in kernel logs or anything.
