[vox] PC for sale / PC for free



I've got a pair of desktop PCs that I'm getting rid of.

For free:
* Dell Dimension L800r desktop PC
  + Specs:
    - Beige pop-open case
    - 800MHz PIII CPU
    - 512MB RAM  (two slots w/ 256MB each, IIRC)
    - 80GB HDD  (7200rpm WDC WD800JB)
        Mounted as / with Xubuntu 9.04 installed
    - NOTE: Does NOT include an optical drive! (I removed a busted CDRW drive)
    - Floppy drive
    - ??? graphics (built-in)
    - ??? sound (card)
    - Serial port
    - Parallel/printer port
    - 2x USB ports
    - PS/2 keyboard/mouse ports
    - ??? ethernet (card)
  + Includes:
    - IBM PS/2 keyboard
    - Power cable
    - Home-burned CDROM of Xubuntu 9.04 live/installer
    - NOTE: Does NOT include mouse, monitor, speakers, etc.
    - NOTE: Remember, it does NOT have an optical drive!

  Would be good as a server, a kid's system, a thin client,
  or a minimal desktop system (hence my choice of installing Xubuntu).

    since that's where we _usually_ want the conversation to remain...
    (And not everyone's cool enough to [know how to properly] use Mutt ;) )

Thanks!
