Recycle your old computer!

This comes from the UGA Linux Group:
Over at Free IT Athens, we're facing a problem that hasn't occured since mid 2009: we're running low on computers! This means that volunteers who want to gain experience with computer hardware and linux have nothing to work on, and families that would like to purchase a low-cost computer have to stay on a waiting list.

If you have any computers with a 500 mhz or faster processor that you can donate, this would be a great help! Donations are tax-deductible and may be dropped off at 594 Oconee St on Wednesdays from 6-8PM or Sundays from 1-5PM. THis is the ACTION Inc building next to the old Boys and Girls Club. When you arrive, ring the doorbell labeled Free IT Athens and someone will let you in. Our volunteers will be able to carry your equipment upstairs and print a receipt.

I think what happened was you C&Ped from your email, and the links in your email have some referral marker for them rather than just the link itself. Or... maybe the original link was that way from where you C&Ped it? I dunno. I just deleted everything that was before the embedded URL in the link when I saw it didn't work in the browser.

I wish they had need for monitors, but I can understand why they don't.
