I am in, sounds good.  Dynebolic would be a great Pd demo platform for  
scavenged computers.  I have about 15 scavenged PCs myself, ranging  
from PII 450 to PIII 700.  I am also part of Madagascar Institute,  
which is an arts non-profit which has done 'official' recycling  
activities.  I'd love to do a project to showcase what you can do with  
Pd and abandoned computers.

My experience with Materials for the Arts is that their computer gear  
selection is small and not so good, but its the luck of the draw there.
