James will recount the path ACCRC has taken as it's grown in the last
five years to reclaim and reuse computers, peripherals, and other
electronic devices people donate. In general, ACCRC gives computers
to individuals and worthy organizations without charge or strings.
ACCRC uses Linux on the systems it gives away and has developed quite
a bit of expertise in installing various Linux distros on various
(old) hardware. (flyer for event)
