BAkSCII mobile internet cafe

by ASCII (the Amsterdam Subversive Code for Information Interchange)

The BAkSCII is a wireless internet cafe, ready for instant deployment whereever and whenever the need arises. Constructed around 4 Open Brick computers, 4 TFT flatscreens, one hub, a 12 V battery and a wireless network station, the BAkSCII was originally intended to be mobilized on a Bakfiets ["Box-bike", i.e. a bicycle with a large cargo box on the front] during the N5M4 TML. Since ASCII's relocation due to an unreasonable rent increase on their space, the BakSCII has been the core component of their internet cafe at the squatted EasyCity space.
