I think this list would be useful in other ways. I have a bunch of 
schools in this state that would really benefit from this, but they need 
to know that it is being used elsewhere and have contacts to talk to 
before believing a wild eyed scientist.

I would also like to get a good list of refurbishers.. I have a long 
list of non-profits with small pockets and they would like to get a good 
list of people to buy from.
