Hi Patrick,
I still have it - waiting for the LA committee to let me know who should get it. 
As it was mostly bought with LA money (grant) I think this is the best and most appropriate way to dispose of it.

It won't be available until after the 1st September as the last few users have to have time to move their stuff.

So lobby the committee with your need and you may be the one to get it - good luck.

Hi Anthony,

One of the PLUG members fired your post across to us, and as we've been having some issues with our
current server (1GHz VIA EPIA board; it does work :) crashing randomly I thought I would see if you
still had the server available. If so, we would be very interested.
