Got a problem with your PC? You've come to the right place. You can ask questions of all of us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We run a computer cafe at 268 Verdon Street, Pitsmoor, Sheffield on Saturdays 12-3. Basically you can come along (bring your computer box and discs/product keys if needed) and get any computer problems sorted out then and there for free. If you need some new hardware we can tell you exactly what to get and then fit it for you. If your computer needs new software we can find open programs and we'll help download, install & configure them for you. If you've had a bad case of virus attack then we will nurse your computer back to health!
We are a group of volunteers from the local community who mostly work in IT (support engineers, network administrators, IT tutors for example). We keep meeting people with computers at home that they aren't using because they're 'broken'. By spending a little time and sometimes replacing a chip or two these computers can often be brought back to life.
We feel that fixing our neighbours computers for free is good because then we can all be better connected to one another in our community and in our world. Another part of our mission is to register everyone we help and offer them a burngreave.net email address - then subscribe them to this list!
So come down, bring your tired and huddled mass storage devices, rotten apples and PC's you can't get to work. If you want to get involved post a message to this list or just come along and see what we're doing and how you could help.
