MerTech Software & Consulting has announced the MerTech Credit Card Transaction Server for Unix and Linux based systems. The MerTech Credit Card Transaction Server combines with the Visa POS-port device to provide high speed, low cost, online credit card authorization and processing. Credit card transactions can be sent to the server over a local area network, using TCP/IP sockets, or in a batch file. Typical response times are comparable to those provided with an expensive leased-line service. The server can be easily interfaced with most database front-ends, and CGI scripts (for use with a Secure Web Server). Client APIs are available on most platforms.
Yggdrasil Computing has begun shipping its video seminar on installing Linux. Linux Installation and Beyond is a two and a half hour instructional video available on VHS in the NTSC format (the format used in the Americas and many industrialized Asian countries). A PAL version will be available soon.
Installing Linux for the first time can be intimidating, even for an experienced user. Seeing the installation of Linux first can save you time and help you better configure your system. If you already have Linux installed, you may find it informative to see the way someone else has configured their system or to quickly see the installation of a different Linux distribution without disrupting your existing system. Price: $24.95.
