There is now a glass case under the Kemper Hall stairs that houses the 
computer museum. The case looks about half full now, so there's probably 
room. I don't think all of the CS club's computers are out there though, 
but you can ask them whether they'll take them.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
