Recycling by Team Children in Audubon, Pa 610-666-1795

We ask people to fill out an application, pay a small administrative fee, and write a letter stating why they cannot afford a new computer. Our Mission Statement: TeamChildren's body-mind program aims to ensure every child has the tools and opportunities they need to contribute and compete effectively in today's 21st century digital, global environment. In order to achieve our goals we accept donations of used computer, working printers, flat screen monitors, cables and anything else related to computers. These donations can be dropped off at our technology center in Audubon, PA. (960 Rittenhouse Rd, Audubon, PA 19403)

ISO's from George Chromixium-1.0-i386-Hybrid.iso PCLinux-LXDE2014.08.ISO

These are two, fairly new, and interesting linux live operating system iso's. The first one I put on a 2GB flash drive using Unetbootin. The second one I burned to a CD. They both run surprisingly fast. Please try them yourselves and comment on a Computer Corner broadcast. Perha ps even Captain Kirk may find them quite interesting. They both work very well, and should prove helpful for many folks.
