Thanks!  We should also document a few other things:

1. we can't accept donations of CRTs unless they're very
   special-purpose, because e-waste disposal of CRTs is very expensive
   in California.  The exception is for unique devices, for example the
   slow-scan CRT in the SEM or the vector CRT in an old arcade stand-up
   console.  IMHO a special-purpose but uninteresting CRT, like from a
   commercial security system, would not qualify.

2. we can't provide valuation information, the receipt will simply list
   the items donated and it's up to the donor to provide a value if they
   wish to claim a charitable donation for tax purposes.

I'll put those on the wiki unless somebody else beats me to it...
