Approaching big corporations for their old IT stuff?
Has anyone ever done this? I saw something not long ago that sometimes if you approach for instance a bank, they may be able to give you their relatively new desktops (seeing as their replacement policy is ridicolously short in some cases). Has anyone ever tried or know anything about doing this? Is it even at all likely the big corporations will even consider doing this, even if the school did press releases etc providing publicity?
As well as trying to find bid/grant funding, we need to be looking at other ways to upgrade our hardware and this crossed my mind as a possibility, but not if there isn't a cats chance in hell! Doesn't help I wouldn't have a clue where to start, who to contact etc..
