It is looking like mid november which would be 12th I think. I need to
ask for (beg) a table only several days previous to the date to get
any 'unused' table, known only near the date. I will not be available
for the October fair - the london LinuxWorld is almost conflicting
badly with important family calendar dates and the october fair would
be too much to handle domestically...  :-(

There is not much drama at these fairs, but the repeated presence I
believe is most important to confirm credibility for otherwise capable
people who feel helpless and stuck with windows. In the bracknell
location there is no internet access otherwise I would love to run a
rolling install demo.

(BTW the hampshire LUG is very organised for general LUG activities
including Infopoint activities - Debian based spiritually but Ubuntu
friendly and very sociable too)
