Since these donations have been committed to the Parabola wiki's SVN
repository as non-monetary donations to Parabola by the recipients while
they were members, it is clear that the donations have been declared as
donations to Parabola, and are not personal donations.

All this hardware needs to be returned ASAP.

Let's not forget about the adapter and converter paid from the Parabola

Since you are the delegate and time is of the essence (if we wait too
long, former members will "forget" they have to return hardware), I
believe it's better that all the hardware is shipped to you first. Then,
it can be sent to people that require some of this hardware for their
work for Parabola.


P.S. Megver83 your e-mail client breaks the links. I don't know if you
are aware of that.
