We are still rebooting

Reboot is the project of the fablab in which donated laptops are made ready and forwarded to people with little income. There are still many requests.

The reboot meeting is every sencond thursday 7-9 pm. The next date is 25th of January. We are always happy to meet new volunteers! We are also offering help on every second thursday between 7-9 pm. And we are still searching for laptop donations. We’ve tried to find some requirements, because very slow laptops cause an unhappy reboot team… We are searching for laptops with at least Intel core Duo or similar an 2 GB RAM. If you aren’t sure whether your laptop meets the requirements, just hand it in. If it is too slow or too broken we’ll dispose it.

Thanks a lot from Reboot

I asked for laptop donations a few weeks ago and I’m happily surprised to find that we already received 15 laptops since then! This is an amazing amount! Thank you so much for so many laptops! We have already given away 29 laptops this year and we can now give many more. So if you know anyone who needs a laptop please write to reboot-info@nullfablab-neckar-alb.org. The laptops aren’t the newest, but are sufficent for surfing the web or writing a letter.

We also get a funding from “Anstiftung”. We are now able to buy tools and spare parts for reboot. Thanks a lot also for that!

Meanwhile in the fablab: Still fixing laptops

Our project reboot is all about giving used laptops a second life at refugee organisations and for people with low income. It’s been a while since I gave the last information about reboot here in the blog, but the project is still working. We took the time to adjust some of the organization in the background. We are now having a better overview of the donated laptops and also of everyone still in search for a laptop. And we still have both: Donated laptops that need help and some requests for laptops.

We also made the decicions to change our meetings from irregular dates with many volunteers to regular dates with a little smaller crowd, to keep us less busy. Nevertheless we look forward to volunteers who are willing to help us. Our next meeting is at August 24th 7 pm. At the moment we mostly need help with software. We have two PowerPCs we would like to use and we are have some laptops with wifi problems. Please feel free to join us.

We do also still need laptop donations, because there are constantly requests for laptops. If you want to donate a laptop, contact us via reboot-info@nullfablab-neckar-alb.org
