Hi there Thanks for posting your query. As this isn't a standard Code Club project, it's possible, but unlikely, that you'll get a response in the Code Club forum. May I move your query to the Troubleshooting forum, where you might get an answer from someone who has tried this before? Many thanks Ka...

Re: Working with aging school computers

I'll request this thread is closed and as I said before, we will work out the useful information from it.
