Back from a couple days off. Thanks for responding and I told the fellow that there are a couple in the store and if he wants to leave an order, he is more than welcomed to do so ;-)

I am that "tech" pretty much by default. No one else was interested.
The problem now that they are closed weekends.
Please let me know what you are looking for and I will set some machines
out so you can look. Most machines now are single- or dual CPU P4 Xeons
with 1G or so of ECC RAM. Usually tower. Probably have 4 of these-
mostly Dells. Also have some RISC Suns.
I usually throw a base install of Fedora or Ubuntu to show they work.
Still could use help on computer swap meet. Will try to be a next Happy
Hour to get ideas and explain what we hope to do. Start going through
all the stuff you said you were going to rid of last year.....
