    Depending on how well y'all finance your schools, donate them to local schools. At least that would be something to do around here. But I assume y'all do provide schools with proper hardware and support.
    Bar elementary school they are properly stocked for computer hardware (I think. We certainly where when I was a youngone). Elementary schools don't have their own it people to deal with stuff like this anyways so unsure if they would be put to use at that level even. But yeah it's a good thought. Go easy on the aligator huntin' btw TEX

    IT people, at schools? What is this witchcraft?
    (We get one guy once a week for the server stuff, and since my school at one point did some funky magic we also have another guy for all of our machines, etc. Better than nothing.)

    I'd see if the elementary schools even want more computers. It's a highly debated topic here whether more computers/tablets should be used in early education.

    Ah.

    Well turns out spending a formative time in Georgia left a mark on my English.

    Or to paraphrase Elriche on our first meeting: he came to expect a thick German accent and got educated Southern instead.

    Also y'all is just too useful.
