we have decided to share it with our members. We paid $40.00 for a Pentium grade
computer from the local Good Will. We bought 2 Micro Touch touch screen monitors
from Ebay for $240.00 and 2 Epson TmT-80 thermal printers from the same source
for $100.00. Our local comp USA provided the serial ports for the printers. We
setup one monitor at our wait station with 1 printer. The PC is located under
counter. VB6 is very fast so we did not have to install the second monitor and
have not experienced a back up. We ran one printer to the kitchen from there
they get only a kitchen order. Our wait staff took all of 1 hour to become
comfortable with all of this systems features and have been able to double their
productivity and tips ( Customer Satisfaction). We have also reduced our staff
