Re: [midatlanticretro] terminal 10
I have a few old keyboards and machines with hard drives of 200M to 1G. The machines
can be used for simpler programs.

Can you supply 6 terminals and set up the network machine for the infoage display so that staff can host an interactive exhibit?
We have on this list been talking about setting up a terminal network for years...if it's so easy to setup and support why don't we have one?
I have the server and it's ready to be installed. All we need are 6 donated pc's capable of tcpip communications with a server and someone to write the website. We also need a 8 port switch and ethernet cables.

- If your looking for a ethernet switch I think I have a brand new 24 port switch. I'll try to drag it over next time I'm there.
