A Work Party is one of the scheduled CFK events at which volunteers do any or all of the following:

  • Pick up computers from a donor and deliver them to a designated CFK location (or the LCTA???).

  • Receive computers delivered by donors.

  • Clean and perform initial testing of donated computers.

  • Computers that are found defective are "parted out" to preserve good parts to use in other partially defective computers.

  • Defective and excess parts are stored to avoid creating a hazard until they are sold as junk (after a minimum of 1000 pounds is accumulated).

  • Prepare computers for distribution including the following:
    • the hard disk is reconfigured and formatted
    • a new operating system is installed (Vector Linux for Kids)
    • it is combined with a keyboard, mouse, and monitor to comprise a system
    • it is logged into the CFK asset management system and assigned an asset number
    • it is tested as a system shortly before distribution (ideally, the recipient will see the system operating before shutting it down for distribution)
    • when supplies allow, computers with CD-Rom drives and modems (later, after working out installation and other details) will be distributed
