As I have offered on several occasions, I believe my boss may still be
willing to donate / reduce prices for some type of equipment,
particularly older servers, such as P4 3.0 or Celeron 2.4/2.8 systems
(possibly a Dual Xeon 2.66 GHz), possibly even with a reasonable amount
of bandwidth. Luke, if you want me to see whether we can provide
something still, I can ask my boss for some quotes to include in your
research. Just let me know what kind of need there would be.
