I would be interested in this.  I support a church network and we're
needing some additional equipment.  Our budget is about zero right now.
If anyone else has anything, please let me know.

Subject: [opensource] Dell PowerEdge 2500 :: Needs a Good Home

Hey!  All y'all are geeks, just for lookin'!   ;o)

I'm writing because the law firm where I work has an old Dell PowerEdge
2500 which is going into retirement in the near future (most likely
after May).   In the past year it has not even been "used" but it has
been powered, "just in case a document didn't transfer to the new
system."  Anyway... as retarded as that just sounded here's the cool

The administration here is looking for a good candidate to receive this
fine piece of donated equipment.  I know there is a significant
community of FOSS / Linux / Geek people out there who work with "IRL"
community programs.  We are looking for schools, churches, rec centers,
or any other community efforts, volunteer or otherwise, which could use
an addition or upgrade to their IT infrastructure.  We are also looking
for someone to help make the server (which will have blank disks) become
useful as part of some solution for the community.  I have agreed to
donate some of my own time, but my limited experience likely won't
suffice for any reasonable timeframe.  :o) 

I'm thinking any place that has an "ad-hoc" LAN without any central file
/ mail server could really benefit.

1150mhz Pentium III  -  (pretty sure it's not a P4)
1024mb ecc sdram 
3 x 36GB 10,000rpm scsi disks w. RAID controller
Tape backup unit  -  (i think)

If you know of anyplace which would benefit, or if you would like to
volunteer, please reply without changing the subject line (the RE: is
fine).  Also please "reply-to-all" or cc: my email address ... or else I
might totally miss your reply.
