We have been able to equip nearly 90 refugee families through donations of equipment, time, and expertise and a lot of that came from SATLUGgers.  Many, many thanks.

Don't know that I have any spare SATA drives, I'll have to check.

Anyone care to create some extra space wherever workable-but-not-currently-being-used monitors are lurking around the house?

I have an old 17" CRT monitor that hasn't been used in years, but I'm not entirely sure that it still works any more.  And I have a 15" 4x3 format LCD that I don't really need because I already have more LCD monitors than I can use.  Both are color displays and take only analog VGA inputs, as I recall.

However, I'm not in a place where I can bring them down to San Antonio, although if someone else wants to provide transportation from Austin then I'm happy to check them out and make sure they're in working order before I send them off.
