Hi Nick,

I'm thinking, since you will be able to bring your monitor, I can install Edubuntu/ Educational Apps on my laptop and hook it up o the monitor so that it can be used as a showcase tool for parents and children.

Your laptop can then be configured to show the Open Movie, games and definitely configure some themes to look alike "Mac", "Windows 7" and some funky style!

My EeePC can be used to showcase Netbook Remix.

50pcs Canonical leaflets can be given included with CDs. Do we have CDs?

Sticker sheets. Are these the ones with "Powered by Ubuntu"? If they are, we can use them if somebody asks us to do a bootable USB loaded with Ubuntu.

You have a router, I have a switch. We really need someone who knows how to configure my Wireless Broadband as a shared Internet connection. Anyone?

These are just my suggestions, feel free to comment and make changes.

[Qoute] I'm happy to come early on the day, but I doubt I'll be much use besides setting

By making yourself present is so much more useful even if you do nothing. I'm sure there will be something to do, just like last year!

Finally, we have to confirm with Billy, what are the total number of tables and chairs allocated. If space is restricted, we might have to abandon some stuff. But as always, the more, the merrier! I'm supposed to handle SFD stuff, I apologise for planning too late. I have to get this on, before it becomes a NATO(No Action Talk Only) event.

We need volunteers for the event! Please place your names here:
1. Billy
2. Nick HS
3. Heidir

Best Regards,
Muhammad Heidir
