We need a clear Outline for Evaluating Mac computers and training volunteers to work in the area. The first thing we need is an idea of what we expect Volunteers to get out of working in this area and what we expect to get out of the Volunteers working in the area. Do we want them to be able to build their own Macs? Work in the OSx environment? Apply Linux to Mac computers? Do we want to increase the output of working Macs using Linux operating systems? Do we just want to keep up with recycling? Do we want to explore vintage Macs (Sales and museum pieces)?
Maybe we could have several shifts a week, each with a particular focus and the volunteers can be trained for a particular shift. Ex: Vintage Mac, Intel Mac, PPC Mac, Triage (or Recycling).
IDEA: What if we let Adoption Volunteers do a shift in Macs to do Recycling projects? They could be seated tasks, supervised by staff, and the whole focus of the shift could be to tear down systems. We could call it advanced Reycling?
eMac 1.25 disassembly guide don't remember where I found this one.
Mac Hardware Spreadsheet as of: 12/15/2012 includes lots of HDD removal links.
Mac Hardware Database as of: 12/19/2012 Macintosh Hardware table can be sorted using the Query function. Open with LibreOffice Base
Variable Volunteer Orientation: Multi-entry orientation that allows volunteers to start training at one of many starting points. Depending on what we have in stock, we can get new volunteers started without overwhelming them or taking too much staff time getting them settled.
We need to document the regular day-to-day things that our long-time volunteers do without thinking about it. (What basic how-tos will be lost if/when they leave?)
