Symptoms of fatigue include the machine slowing down, producing more noise, becoming less efficient as cooling, software bugs, conflicts and crashes.

A computer network consists of a collection of computers, software, and hardware that are all connected to help their users work together. A network can be wireless or they can be 'joined' via cabling systems.

The most common networks are Local Area Networks or LANs for short. A LAN connects computers within a single geographical location, such as one office building, office suite, or home.
