Hi Dave,

Welcome to the list.

I think it's fair to say that the last five days have been unusual for  
Ubuntu-UK there is usually a lot more ubuntu-focused content on the  
list, it just so happens that the last few days have been spent  
discussing LUGs and Computer fairs.

I'd recommend hanging on to your subscription as there are some real  
experts on this list and it is definitely worth asking any questions  
that you have because you'll almost certainly get a solution!

Out of interest, which LUG are you a member of?

Kind regards,
