Just before I left the university, there was an old G4 tower that some
other faculty member left behind and I messed with a bit. But, it
needed to be reinitialized (he neglected to leave a userid/password
behind) and I never got around to it. If that box is still there, one
of my colleagues who is still at the university could scrounge it and
we could use it as a host. It might kill multiple birds with a single
stone because we maintain a web site as well.
