UNTIL now, sharing printers between several PCs has called for relatively complicated local area networks.

ShareWork from Xirlink, of California, is a modular system allowing a maximum of 32 PCs under DOS or Windows automatically to share a maximum of eight printers and up to 28 SCSI (small computer systems interface) peripherals.

Each ShareWork module comes with a double connector that maintains its normal circuitry. It can plug into any series connector for peripherals and automatically configures itself.

Da Vinci works on CD-ROM LEONARDO da Vinci, recognised for the Mona Lisa, also made his mark as one of the most brilliant minds of the 15th century.

Interactive Publishing Corp of New York is now releasing a CD-ROM for the Mac and Windows featuring 20 of his notebooks with designs for helicopters, weapons and other plans.

The disk will also contain a biography of da Vinci as well as animated sequences from some of his drawings.
