    With the budget we can anticipate over the coming months, we'll be rejuvinating anything with a CPU and RAM in it, bunging Windows98 SE on and shunting them back out to classrooms - nothing will be going spare!

    Just knocked up this, so download and install python (if you haven't got it already) and paste this

    Code:
    loop=1
    import random
    while loop==1:
        foo=random.randint(0,2345674323)
        print foo,
    into a new file and run it.

    In the IDLE, click "File > New window"

    Paste the script there and hit F5

    Probably like free AVs, keeps an eye on who is using with the possibility of turning them into a paying customers. After the year just renew.

    Surely a copy of VirtualBox running locally is less labour intensive than setting up a physical machine!

    free, and less power intensive too...
