Glad too. My boss has already made an article he published to the
education sector, so I should be able to adapt it to suit our current

Nothing much has changed other than we are looking into LDA and Sound,
and wanting to use Edubuntu instead of Debian.... but that is a logical
step as the two carry allot of similarities. We are however missing
pictures so I'll see what i can knock up. Empty class room it may have
to be, I'll check on the legality of showing kids in photos (they may
need parental consent... I think?).

I'll post back here and let you all know how I go.
Kind regards
