[ProgSoc] [DonateSoc] ProgSoc want a ProLiant?

Thanks for the offer of RAM, James (Kirsop). I have already replied to
James (Ducker) off-list telling him to go ahead and put the ProLiant
up on ebay. We already have quite a bit of hardware lying around
unused, which we need to utilise/cannibalise/recycle. It would be a
bit irresponsible to continue to hoard machines that could be used

I am hoping to press some of the dormant machines into service over
the next few months. No doubt some of those could benefit from RAM
upgrades, requiring DIMMs (SIMMs, SIPPs, DIPs!?) of various vintages.
When that time comes, and if I can't supply upgrades from ProgSoc's or
my personal store, I will post a wishlist to the ProgSoc list. Perhaps
your spare RAM box could come to our aid then.

Peter (CSO)

If you're short on an adequate amount of RAM, I can probably source
you some second hand stuff from a spare RAM box we have at work,
depending on what's already installed.
