computer donations would be appreciated, and Ubuntu (or Xubuntu if the spec isn't that hot) would be braw.
our main problem currently is a lack of an IT Coordinator for The Forest (or just anyone with the appropriate time and skills) and the resultant hardware and network set-up nightmare we accordingly have, with plans for basic web browsing boxes to separate usage of a lesser importance from the higher spec machines, and to get a file server on the go to lessen the "save it to the desktop" syndrome and make a start on a basic document repository, both falling by the wayside..
so, essentially, thanks very much for the offer, working machines would be good, but we don't actually have anyone to set them up at the moment i'm afraid >_<;;
i spoke with nix recently and we discussed writing up a volunteer job spec to frame the opportunity for some interested party, which i would pimp to the Techmeetup crowd or post on volunteerscotland.org.uk..
