In the cyber cafes, timekeeping is an essential logistics area as the surfers are charged according to the time they have spent surfing. Normally the cyber cafe manager records the time on a paper register, and in bigger cafes they use a separate computer for the same, which is quite expensive and cumbersome.
To remove this inadequacy we have developed a stand-alone Rackeys Cyber Logger, that could be placed on the desk of the cyber cafe manager, and while sitting on his table he can keep the time, and other logistic record of the his customers. The customer too will be able to see the time on-line, he would start his session himself, and when he ends the session he would know the time and the charge. The cyber cafe manager would know the corresponding time and the charge too, by just pressing the button of the specific customer upon the Rackeys Cyber Logger. Standard IBM-AT Keyboard can be attached to the Rackeys Cyber Logger at the provided socket. The name and address of the customer can be entered and saved in the log report through this attached keyboard for record purposes. Rackeys Cyber Logger also provides the shutdown of all the clients and server with single button. The machine would also provide for cyber cafe membership whereby cyber cafe manager can create prepaid or postpaid membership (optional). It also provides for a site alert which when initiated would alert him about any immoral or anti-national sites visited by the customers in their cyber cafe cabins (optional). It is a stand-alone machine, cost-effective, easy to use, and when attached to a printer it would also provide the cyber cafe manager the hard copy of the individual usage of all clients for the day or the month whichever he requires. The machine provides high client and server security.
