Dear Ubuntu users in Kenya,

I am writing from the UK on behalf of a colleague, Geoffrey Sabiiti, who
is at the University of Nairobi.

Geoffrey is attempting to run our regional climate model on a Linux
based PC as part of his studies but is having trouble getting Linux
installed and the model up and running.

Our regional model is called PRECIS.  You can see more information at
our website:

The model is designed to run on a Linux based PC only as part of its
commitment to being low infrastructure to allow for users in all parts
of the world to carry our climate model runs.  

Is there anyone on this list who is in Nairobi, or, even better,
at the University of Nairobi, who would be willing to meet with Geoffrey
at the University's Meteorology department for help installing Ubuntu on
three PCs and then help installing the PRECIS model via a simple shell

If so, please contact myself or contact Geoffrey directly - he is copied
on this message.  Thank you so much for any help and advice you can

With gratitude,

David Hein
