    Hello everyone! :wave:

    As you all know, I quit medicine to run ARP full time. One of my first steps was to move to PJ. That's why I've been missing from the forums for so long recently. :D

    The second step, which I'm currently in the process of doing, is get a proper office for Team ARP. If everything goes well, we may have our permanent office in Kelana Centre Point! :thumb:

    However, when I was running through our inventory, I realized that Team ARP has very limited hardware and software. Even right now, we are running on outdated and insufficient hardware.

    So, I would like to put out a request that if you have any hardware or software you no longer wish to use or if you have anything to wish to donate to Team ARP, please do let us know.

    We are DESPERATELY in need of both hardware and software to build additional workstations, as well as new testbeds. Here's a list of items that we would love to obtain :

    1. Processors
    2. Motherboards
    3. Memory modules
    4. Graphics cards
    5. Hard drives
    6. Power supplies
    7. Monitors
    8. Accessories like mice, keyboards, etc.
    9. Notebooks
    10. Server

    1. Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    2. Microsoft Office XP/2003
    3. Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2
    4. Adobe Acrobat
    5. Macromedia Dreamweaver
    6. Macromedia Fireworks

    Yes, it seems like a darn long list of EVERYTHING anyone would want. Sadly, we don't have enough money to buy what we need.

    So, we hope you can help us build new systems and more importantly, testbeds for the new Team ARP! :pray: :pray:

    Thanks!!! :thumb:

    ANY hardware or software...?


    It would be most helpful if you'd

    Memory modules...what's the smallest module you'd find useful? sense giving you anything you can't use...;)

    Where are you located? (like gas...shipping costs are a little outrageous these days)

    I've got 512 ram but its only pc2100.
    I've got a cd rom drive that works fine. Also a case, but shipping the case will cost LOTS. I've also got a 20gb hdd, but maybe that is too small to be of use?

    I got a spare few mice that arent dirty. I've got a GeForce2 mx I dont use and a geforce4 mx440. and a voodoo2.
    How much of this do you need?

    EDIT: and a CD burner :p
  4. I have a pair of PSU's and Motherboards that you might like to get your hands on. Also a network hub and maybe a wireless router. :mrgreen: Just PM me for details.

    Hi! Well, anything 512MB and above should be useful.

    We are based in PJ, Malaysia. So, any local donors would be great. :D

    Hehe.. We intend to create a few PCs to work on while the testbeds are running.

    They shouldn't require any fancy graphics card, although we wouldn't mind if someone donates a GeForce 7950 GX2! :wicked:

    Oh, that's interesting! I wonder how much it would cost to have them delivered here... :think:

    Will PM you! Thanks! :thumb:

    Yup, we certainly could. But if any kind soul can help us with the software, that would be great.

    I've got a HP A4331D to clear. The monster's taking up too much space at home. Need u guys to pick it up if u want it though, the thing is too heavy for me to carry unless its over a short distance.

    I have 2 old servers in my office. I'm not sure if you want it. What's the purpose of the server?

    I have a number of things here as well. Since you didn't ask me personally, I post here...
