Some information about PHSW
An organization is like a tree full of monkeys  
All on different levels, some climbing up.
The monkeys on top look down and see a tree full of 
smiling faces.
The monkeys on the bottom look up and see nothing but assholes !


How large is PHSW ?

There is only one developer. I am doing this as a hobby. 

What is the developement equipment of PHSW ?

The older software was developed on the 520STFM and on a 16MHz MegaST with internal SCSI drive.
The Mega ST had since been sold.
Software were then developed on the Falcon 030. In 2005, the Falcon died after NVRAM battery fails (bootup to a blank screen).
However, in 2008 the Falcon was ressucrected by changing battery type (3.6V to 6V). 
All backups were on a External 1GB SCSI drive but it died due to old age, and replaced by 9GB IDE with SCSI-IDE adapter. 

The newer software post 2010, are done on the Falcon with CT63+CTPCI.
