No hardware donations; but I'm happy to advise on procurement and configuration of same. Also negotiation of connectivity from our local suppliers. It's a little more complicated when you're a tiny little island than those "away" fully appreciate.


Also, if I may please share, Barbados is handling this emergency incredibly well. I'm proud to say I'm involved in a small part of this effort, which I'll be able to share more details about next week.

P.S. The Barbados Hash House Harriers serve Mount Gay Rum, and Banks and Deputy beer (and wine for those who prefer that) after the walk/run. So that's covered...

Add in a summer of frequent mob violence in the streets of many large cities, and increasing crime generally, and the case for travel became less compelling.
Spending money for travel would mean less money available for gpus, cpus, and utility bills!
Now is not a very good time for travel.
