A new life for serveral laptops

You’ll probably want to know what happened to the 20 laptops, that were ready after the last reboot-day: Most of them are already given away to serveral groups and users.

Six laptops are not at Asylcafé in Französisches Viertel in Tübingen, three have been given to www.weststadtasyl.de, two are used by underaged refugees via TeamTraining GmbH and four laptops are at Hirrlingen for German classes.

Again thanks a lot to all our donators and to everyone who contributed to finish the laptops!

Another nice reboot-day

EhrgangLast sunday was a very successfull reboot-day: We snd our kind and helpful guest were able to fix 12 laptops. The first ones are already on their way to some refugees here in Tuebingen.

We also decided to throw away five more laptops. That sounds much, but we invested a lot of time to see that they are still broken. Is it worth to spend time (and probably money) for an afterwards very slow computer?

Our next reboot-day will hopefully be more structured and organized: We are planning to have someone handing over a laptop and its pupose and taking it back afterwards. The performed steps and and the new diagnosis will then be noted immediately. We hope that this change will make the reboot-days more nicer for our guests.

If you are willing to help, just contact us!

The leftovers of ‘Reboot’

Our project ‘Reboot’ does have two outputs: Usefull Laptops and desktop PCs for refugees and other users but also some old hardware. Sometimes broken parts have to be substituted, sometimes we exchange very old parts. We try to be carefull with every bit that is leftover: The parts that aren’t available for recycling are used in workshops for children. They are building nice robots from our leftovers.
