Abstract

Due to the di�culty of setting up a server and con�guring machines, many regions are forced to have the host site at the same location year after year. In our region, we do not have a permanent host site, but keep a permanent server, which we transport to our host site each year. Our previous server was rack-mounted, and therefore, awkward to move from place to place. For the 2012 regional contest, however, we acquired a new, custom-built, highly portable� machine as our server. This paper describes the advantages conferred by this server, as well as the possibilities it provides for the future.
