I propose the following time line:

- - DSL/network setup by the end of this week.

- - Hardware round-up and upgrades by the end of next week.

- - Software setup/installation by the end of the following week.

Training...?  Bill, you mentioned possibly LUGOD hosting class(es) of
some sort? (but not just for DCM, right?)  Further on this...?  I
thought it sounded like a REALLY good idea!  And if not, any volunteers
for an OSS crash-course for the Average Joe users that volunteer at DCM? :-)


DSL
===
I agree with Bill - DSL is first priority - un-utilized broadband is
tragic! :(  So, does anyone have a router/cables they could donate?  And
Bill, if not, do you know if DCM is able (or willing?) to purchase such
things?  And is anyone interested in meeting me at DCM near the end of
the week to setup their network?


HARDWARE
========
If anyone has anything they want to donate - Please bring it to the
upcoming Tuesday night meeting!  I can't stay for the duration of the
meeting but if it is more convenient for anyone I could be there around
6:00 - 6:30 to collect any hardware donations.


SOFTWARE
========
If we end up installing Linux on all/most of their machines, any distro
suggestions?  Personally, I would go with binary Gentoo installs (but I
might be biased ;-) )

And if Microsoft Access is deemed necessary, we have the following two
options:

1. Keep one Windows machine on hand (as already suggested by Bill).
2. Use CrossOver Office, which currently retails ~$60 and ONLY supports
Access 2000.

And if we end up providing them with a kiosk system for their clients, I
will need your past experience with this Bill!
