What type of hardware do you need?

Lots of great hardware is available for free.  This morning I was at an e-
waste place and saw some Lenovo PCs that were ready for recycling.  I grabbed 
the RAM from a couple of systems that each had 2*2G DDR2-800 DIMMs.

I often offer old PCs at LUV meetings.  But I haven't been doing that much 
recently due to lack of interest.  Dual-core 64bit systems that are fully 
functional don't seem to get much interest nowadays.

If you want a PSU and CPU+motherboard in a fully working white-box system and 
can collect from Melbourne then I can give you something.  Probably an i5 or
