PBase's Field Offices (humor)


Remote offices exist to position PBase's support staff members close to subscribers. The offices, staffed with help operators, equipment technicians, and data janitors, vary in size and appearance according to the specific user environment. These photos were taken in the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. They are typical of PBase installations world-wide.

John Cooper has documented a PBase office on
a boat on the River Thames in England:
