hey guys!

the sending out of the install cd's has slowed down a bit lately.  I had a
few people contact me from the post I put on the local wiki, and a few more
from the bulletin board at my work.  nothing in the last week.  Seems like
ubuntu will have a good presence at cebit in a couple of weeks.

can local distribution get a spot in the new site?

I have tried distributing ubuntu through the student assoc of my local
university and was really surprised at the result.  I was contacted by their
marketing manager when I attempted to post on the classified section of
their website.  its ok to sell a computer, fine to flog a desk. but giving
out open source software seems frowned apon.  I had my integrity grilled
for attempting to give out software for free!  so much for university
student associations promoting the interests of students!

anyone got any good ideas for sharing the love?
