The first question that is always asked of us is: "Xanthar, How
many accounts do you have?", well, the answer is 38 Total. Of the
38, 32 are Active, Registered under my name, and paid for by myself,
the other 6 were given away as gifts to return should the owners ever
leave the world of Ultima Online.
The next question that is always asked of us is a form of the
How many computers do you have?", or, "Xanthyrella, How can
you have so many characters on the screen without timing out?".
Well, the following pictures are a glimpse into our War Room.
The Above picture shows the 'corner' part of the War Room.
My wife, Xanthyrella, sits on the left, and I sit on the
right. This allows us to both be close enough together
that we can glimpse at each others computers, as well as
come to each others aid in fights. Our two main fighting computers (which
are the fastest) have the 21" Monitors on them.
The first Four computers can be seen in this picture. The main
computers are both showing scenes from Wintermoor (the left hand
one showing the Rune library and the right hand one showing the
Southern Museum). The computer under the laptop control the Roger
Wilco Hosting, Email and ICQ services. It is on a separate network
and separate internet connection for saftey. Behind this machine
is also the Router and Firewall for both networks. The Sony Laptop
itself shows the Shadowlord Faction Stronghold. This is to watch
the Shadowlords and keep an eye on sigil movement in the warfare
of Factions. The monitor that is "higher" up is showing the
Minax base (it is a little dark). This is how the 2nd stronghold can
The above image depicts the Left hand side view of the War Room. This view
allows us to get a glimpse of the 2nd Laptop just to the right of my (Xanthar's)
main workstation. This laptop is showing the 3rd Faction Stronghold of
the True Britannians in the city of Britain. Finally, you can see the KVM
Switches best from this view. If you look straight down the desk, you will
see a small black box near the mouse with various yellowish buttons. Those
are the KVM switches that allow us to change views on the monitors with
various computers. This is why you do not see one keyboard and one mouse
for each computer we have. A KVM switch allows you to run multiple computers
with only one keyboard and one mouse.
This View depicts the right hand side of the War Room. Here the 7th and
8th computers can be seen, as well as the makeshift 9th computer - The
TV set. When needed (such as faction guarding nights, a laptop with TV
out is hooked up to the TV set in an effort to give us warning of attacks).
The 7th and 8th computers (down on the right hand side corner) are mostly
used to help with power hours as well as keeping characters such as tamers
online so that their Dragons don't go wild.
Finally, here is a view from the right hand side of the War room itself.
As a inspiration to the war effort, you will notice the Klingon Batliff
Weapon hanging on the wall......
