Anything VGA that can do 1024x768 with good color is useful. We're
distributing 25 computers to Community Connection of Northeast Georgia
next week; this will nearly deplete our supply of monitors.

The switch sounds great. If you think it's old, you should see the 10
megabit hub in our lab at the Economic Justice Center.

I think Jim Kinney has some odds and ends to donate as well. Perhaps
organizing an ALE caravan to Athens one weekend is in order. We have
volunteers ready to receive donations every Sunday from 1-5. We can also
put any wandering ALErs to work for a few hours during that time. Since
we're on track to resume our partnership [0] with the school district
(fingers crossed), there should be *plenty* of work to do once they drop
off several hundred laptops.  In exchange for donations or volunteer
hours, I'll gladly reveal where the good beer in town is.
