Hi Folks:

I'm very pleased to announce that Untangle & ACCRC have teamed up with
LinuxWorld (Aug 5-7) for our second Installfest for Schools.  The first
ACCRC/Untangle Installfest for Schools in March refurbished 350 Ubuntu
computers for schools[1].  This time we've gotten a large booth on the
expo floor and will have workstations setup for volunteers to refurbish
recycled computers with Ubuntu and GnewSense.  We particularly need help
with the following:

1)Installing Ubuntu and/or gNewSense  
2)Hacking older hardware and identifying good/bad components

You can signup for a work station here:


Also, if you know of a school in need of computers that's willing to try
GNU/Linux please nominate them here:


And if you have an older computer that you want to donate or recycle,
please bring it to LinuxWorld.  ACCRC will have a collection booth setup
and can provide tax deductable receipts.  PIII and newer systems will be
refurbished with Ubuntu for schools.  Older systems will be recycled
properly by the ACCRC.

Lastly, we are always looking for help getting the word out.  If you want
to give the event some love on your blog, Digg, StumbleUpon, Slashdot, or
some crazy forum please link to the main installfest page, which is

Thanks so much for your help!


P.S. The LinuxWorld Expo free if you register before the conference starts
