nelson.hackr.org.uk hosts the authoritative DNS for the
hackr.org.uk zone and is the mail handler for the
hackr.org.uk domain. It is a virtual machine hosted on fredkin.hackr.org.uk. As these services are critical to the operation of the Hackr infrastructure, access to this host is restricted.
This host is named after Stew Nelson. Stewart Nelson is an American mathematician and programmer from the Bronx who co-founded Systems Concepts. He created the Midnight Computer Wiring Society because he wanted to add an instruction to the PDP-1 computer, and the lab administrators had forbidden anyone “not qualified” from messing with the computer hardware.
