Do you have a Computer we could use?

Updates on what’s happening at Dean Court!

Recently the Community Centre had our Internet connection and WiFi installed.  This is very exciting news but in order to make full use of it we need to setup our WiFi a little bit better so that when someone comes for an event they can login fairly easily.  For those who might know a little bit more the computer would be used to manage what is known as a ‘WiFi captive portal’.

In order to do this we need to setup a computer attached to our WiFi hotspot which will manage any users who connect to it.  This is where you, dear reader, come in as computers unfortunately do cost a bit of money.

We are looking for anyone who has a computer they might be prepared to donate to the centre to use to manage the captive portal.  It would need to be a desktop (not a laptop) computer bought ideally within the last five years.  It will need to be a fair bit newer than the one in the picture!

If you have one please mention it in the comments below or come along to the Community Cafe this sunday morning and let one of the volunteers know.
