Throughout the rest of this report I will use the term mobile computer to mean portable computers in general, and the term mobile client to mean a mobile computer used in connection with a distributed system, i.e., a mobile computer that communicates (regularly) with one or more servers. In the same way the terms stationary computer and stationary client are used. Servers are assumed to be stationary.
