Update 2011 - I am no loner able to supply free hardware for Metro South Australian Charities. I
no longer take hardware for Charities.
I have too many computers and too little
space. I have not had enough time to rebuild the machines.
Please look to the following two groups in
South Australia and be sure to tell them I sent you.

and other technology and installs Open Source software. Technology is
donated to people and organisations who may not otherwise have access to

the Smart State PC Donation Program. The Program aims to re-allocate surplus
computing stock to community groups. Frequently asked questions about the

Email received Friday, 6 October 2006|
I am sending this email on behalf of my father who came and saw you about his Toshiba laptop
He said you were very helpful and also gave him a mouse button and a hard drive
It is very good to know that there is still very helpful people like your self out their
And they will do something for nothing for a stranger
Once again on his behalf thank you
p.s I will be recommending you and your business to anyone who asks me
Attila Balla, Australia
All equipment supplied will have the hard drives securely erased and have a multi DoD overwrite to prevent recovery.
Hardware supplied without a copy of Windows will unfortunately be handed over without Operating systems intact.
As a by-product of my job and projects, I receive many donations of hardware.
This has included
computers and much more.
I will pass this equipment onto Churches, Scout groups, Not for profit organisations, voluntary organisations, schools and Charities.
The only thing you will need is someway to pick the items up.
Through my new Service nicknamed "Computers for charity", I can offer a secure and pain-free way for business to help save money on disposal (and the
environment) and benefit the community.
NB: I am unable to Deliver computers and equipment.
If you are eligible and require hardware please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You might also be eligible for software help from Microsoft. Please look at the paperwork on their site

Overview of Rules and Warranty
Basically there is no warranty. The equipment is free. If you find something that does not work, I will simply try and find you a replacement and the
other item will be disposed of. The Quality of the equipment can never be guaranteed. I take the equipment and refurbish as best as able and then
supply. I am only able to allow South Australian organisations to participate as the items are pick up only (By arrangement). The equipment will only be
supplied to those people who fall into the listed categories or are charities. As all hard drives are reformatted and overwritten, there are very little
chances of any viruses remaining on the systems. Toner for Laser printers will be supplied in the same way I received them. There are an unknown QTY of
pages left in the drums. All equipment is from Business sources and none will be accepted from dubious sources. Most equipment will be supplied without
software and operating systems as it would be illegal to load this software without the appropriate licences. It is appreciated that any items supplied are
supplied with accompanying OEM etc software licences and disks. Items are only available as long as I have stock. As this type of stock holding
fluctuates dramatically (from no stock to 30 PC's in a few days, weeks, months) then there are no guarantees and first in, best dressed.
Items are available for pickup in Valley View, South Australia. Arrangements can be made via email.
