This could be your lucky weekend!

This very weekend we are holding a "bug jam" which is an event where
we attempt to squish as many bugs in Ubuntu as we possibly can. This
results in a bunch of experienced Ubuntu users being in the same
location at once, an ideal opportunity to get a laptop fixed I'd say!

Now, I will probably not be able to be there myself, and would not
want to volunteer others to attempt to fix the laptop for you, but I'm
sure someone who is going will step up and volunteer very shortly :)
*nudge* *nudge* chaps.

You can find details of when and where the event is taking place on
the website here:-

Of course the primary goal of the event is one of squashing bugs, and
educating people on the bugsquashing process, it's not really an
end-user support event. However I suspect if the odd person turned up
and asked for help, I doubt they'd get turned away.

Cheers,
Al.
