It struck me that the Indology FAQ lacked a section dealing with
technology-related queries of all natures, so I have added a category to
this effect and created some very rudimentary headings here:

If those in the group with some expertise in these matters could add
to/modify these headings and add content it would become a very welcome
resource for novices like me.

Thank you,
