Free computers for bushfire victims

The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), with Computers Off Australia and the Australian Computer Society are coordinating the provision of free computers to Victorian bushfire areas. ICT companies have been asked to register support the AIIA website.

Unfortunately when I went to register my company, the site returned "404 Not Found". So one service I could provide is web site testing. I designed the AIIA's first web site, while I was on a course at the Melbourne Business School in 1995.

More seriously I would like to offer the people of Victoria what assistance I can with dealing with this and future emergencies:
There may also be some scope for modular computer equipped classrooms to be deployed to replace burnt out schools, libraries and other facilities.
