    Edugeek Swap Shop forum?

    Essentially, list what you want to swap (or dispose of), whether you want anything for it and what condition it's in. People can then ask questions in the item thread and all arrangements are carried out off-forum.

    We have cupboards full of stuff that we don't need, but does work fine. I'm sure that somewhere out there, a sysadmin is looking for something we're about to skip.

    Sounds like a great idea.

    If it doesn't happen here, there is always FreeCycle.org

    I like the sound of this, we've all got odd and sods that we're free to dispose of but struggle to justify chucking. Swaps or free to a good home would work with the onus on the recipient to arrange collection/carriage.

    So kind of like FreeCycle or eBay but with a much smaller audience then?

    Let's face it - not many other organisations would make use of the kit we dispose of would they

    I don't know, what might seem like junk to a secondary school could be worth something to a primary school where money is more of a hard ship. If a school can get one or two years more our of old equipment then it's a very good deal, especially if it's free to them.

    It sounds like a good idea to me. Thin client schools can still use p133's ! but bin dual xeon p3 servers.

    Cheers

    And i think the swap shop is a fantastic idea.

    We have a good pile of stuff to get rid of such as a Dlink DES-6000 chassis switch with 96 100mbit ports, 2 gigabit fibre ports and 12 100Mbit fibre ports. And a pile of DES-1024R+'s (7 to be precise, 3 with 100mbit fibre panels) and some even older 10Mbit hubs!!

    A forum to put these up would be good.

    I'd be tempted by the DES6000 as well especially as I could image a couple of rooms away from the rest of the network.
