Was planning to haul in the system box plus its included peripherals (as above) to Sunday's BerkeleyLUG meetup at 85C Bakery Cafe, assuming that the interested parties are still planning to attend then; https://berkeleylug.com/meetings/
for meetup dates, times and exact location.
It would be great if those interested parties or any others would bring both a standard VGA 15-pin flatscreen monitor and a Debian Testing/"buster"-compatible USB WiFi adapter to attach to the system and test it out using whatever WiFi is already present or can be hooked-up while at 85C Bakery. The Debian WiFi Wiki page https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi
could help in acquiring and then successfully getting such an adapter to function correctly on this 32bit IBM/Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop system.
