What's Going On

As of 11/3/2009, the RAD committee decided to reimpose limits to LCDs and laptops.

If you can demonstrate that your organization needs the following items:
   * Laptops
   * LCD monitors
You can apply for a maximum of 3 of each. If you need more, after 90 days, you may re-apply.
It is necessary to detail why you need laptops as opposed  to PCs and why you need LCD monitors as opposed to CRT monitors.
Please be as specific as possible.
