Rup told me he wanted to learn how to create a website – for free. Within an hour he had created this Nepalicomedy site with embedded videos from YouTube, a custom header background image, custom navigation menu, 4 static pages, and a blog landing page.
Every once in a while we get some pretty exciting donations. This Area 51 Alienware desktop came in last Saturday. I had someone give it a thorough cleaning and an Ubuntu 10.04.3 OS install. It is being offered for sale tomorrow for $180. If you want to see it you better come in this week. It only has a P4 3.00 GHz CPU (1MB L2 cache & H.T.), 2 1GB sticks of 533 DDR1 RAM and a 200+GB SATA hard drive. I pretty sure someone will just use the case and replace the motherboard.
