Equipment donations to help relieve IMC Portland glitches sought

Have you just bought a new 2. gig hrtz computer to upgrade a slower performer?
IMC Portland needs your older spare equipment including boxes with speeds
in the excess of 750 megahrz, harddrives (5 gig+), power supplies (300 watts +), and motherboards that can work with the last recent to most recent generation of chips.
Have you just bought a new 2. gig hrtz computer to upgrade a slower performer?

IMC Portland needs your older spare equipment equipment including boxes with speeds in the excess of 750 megahrz, harddrives (5 gig+), power supplies (350 watts +), and motherboards that can work with the last recent to most recent generation of chips (athlon, pentium). Raw, no frills, boxes are fine but of course it would be great to have some form of networking (either onboard ethernet or with a NIC card).

We are working as hard and as fast as possible to try to clear the glitches in the system that you have seen in evidence on PDX IMC of late, and your donations could help vastly with moving this process forward.

Pickups can be arranged anywhere within the tricounty area
which includes Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington in greater Portland.
Drop-offs within the Portland area can also be arranged
if that is more conveniant.

Please contact the technical crew at
 technical@pdximc.org with specifications of
what you have.

Also include  atimm@pacifier.com in your email -
who will arrange the drop-off or pick-up.
