Problems and solutions:


In November of 2006, a member of the community offered a line on 600 Pentium II and III computers. We settled on 80 Pentium IIIs. These machines should be able to run xp and do some other good stuff. The Building and Repairing Computers class will have at them and do some good work. When the machines are up and running, some of them may stay in the school, but mostly they will leave to outside assignments.


What would you do with 80 Pentium IIIs?
