Hi Allan,

No, you do not have to run a dedicated computer for a seismic station.  I am
running mine on the same computer that I use for the Internet and every
other computer use including  games.  At the present time, I am limited to
only one channel meaning only one sensor running at a time

I am using Amaseis written by Alan Jones.  It is available at no cost from

It is designed for a serial connection to the computer so it does tie up one
serial port.

I am using Microsoft Millennium as a computer operating system but I had to
make some software changes to make it perform acceptably on my system.  Alan
says that Amaseis operates better on Windows 95 or 98.

Mauro Mariotti also has a software package that operates with other programs
but I have no experience with that program except to say that it will handle
Dave Saum's amplifier board.  It can be found at

Merry Christmas,
