Thankyou very much, I will organise a log in for you on the blog, and
also update the group leader page. I look forward to reading your work,
it sounds like you have a real passion for Ubuntu.

Well timed! Would it be possible to keep some sort of record from this
presentation? as it will be the first one we can learn from. Perhaps you
can get your hands on a recorder of some sort, video would be the
ultimate, but even just fuzzy audio would do the trick. We can listen to
what sort of questions people ask, and prepare answers etc. There is
nothing better than real life examples to work from.

Well done, keep us informed.
Perhaps there is someone in that area that can help?? Anyone?
