That is great. Do you think the effort reward is worth bringing broken stuff. All the old (semi / non working) that I have brought to the Philippines has been a disappointment in lots of unforeseen ways. A lot of charities often send old computers etc here so It can actually be cheaper to buy a monitor or old computer second hand here rather than pay excess baggage on the aircraft and there is a chance you may have to pay exorbitant import duties.
Ken has given me some working stuff and I think I will use that for education.
If the stuff from Outernet is REPAIRABLE and you can get the parts then the guys who fix mobile phones at a component level down at the markets can fix it. but in my experience I have had to diagnose the problem and show them a device with a working component on it that that they can swap.
The deal here is usually 50 peso ($1) to do the remove and replace a faulty component with a heat gun. But the deal I have is 100 peso’s if it works and nothing if it fails. I had a blown 5 volt regulator on a CHIP computer fixed recently.
If you come to the Philippines and I am around I would love to work with you either on my community projects or your own.
