    On the scrounge...

    As you know our school had a serious fire at the end of April which has pretty much wrote off the Junior side of the school.

    The juniors have no IT at all at the moment in the their new temporary home.

    I'm hoping our local Academy is sorting me some computers so i will hopefully have one per classroom but i havent heard back from the yet.

    So, i'm basically after anything people have to offer...old projectors would be great we need 12! Or if you know of people i can bug let me know.

    Anything you guys have to offer and willing to get down to Brum (we can sort something) let me know!

    Ah no, we just decomissioned 32 old RM laptops yesterday. They were slow, and were taking far too much management time so we binned them. Sorry.

    I hope by binned you mean legally disposed of?

    Of course, I was only half serious.

    Sorry Little-Miss, I'm not in a school anymore so can't help. It's difficult with old kit, we had a similar problem as Hightower in that the old computers we had were just not worth giving away as they were so slow.

    I've got some old towers and CRT monitors.

    Again they are 6/7 years old Win 2k 32/64MB RAM. They'll need to be re-installed from scratch too. If you want them they are yours (in Moseley), but you'd be better hanging on and seeing if anyone has anything half decent around.

    We have 2 projectors you can borrow for as long as you need them. Neither are too bright but they do work.
    They are an Infocus LP240 and an NEC VT440.

    We also have some old Rock Laptops if you are desperate - they are really slow and most don't hold a charge, charging adaptors come with them

    This time last year we could probably have kitted you out fully but we had a clear out in the summer.

    Thanks guys! Its the wrong time of year to be asking. If people have big projects planned they arent going to starting until the summer.

    Insurance claims are a long way off at the moment!

    Littlemiss I have some printers, a few switches (HP), some old base units (which will need HDDs) and some CRTs, and some laptops which can all be collected. We have no way to get them to you without you guys coming to collect from us I'm afraid. We are based in Dunstable.
