<br>a wiki page here for tracking the boxes so that we don't need to reinvent the wheel every time we want to admin these boxes, for example, if we get a call for support from the orgs or individuals who get them. Also, doing it this way will foster independence on the part of the end users, since all know info / issues will be transparent and modifiable in wiki fashion.
<br><br>I have put the info on the Digital Tipping Point Wiki for now, simply because that way it is not sitting out in the middle of nowhere unattended. The DTP has 5 sys admins in 4 time zones, and we are pretty good an stepping on spam. Users must register to edit this wiki page.

If someone wants to move this wiki to another server, I am fine with that. i just wanted to start this page to get a start on it. I have not done a lot with fancy headings or sections yet, since I need to run to lunch.
<br><br>Thanks to Karl Robillard, Tom Haddon, Jim Stockford and Kami Griffiths for organizing this project! <br>
