Hi Gareth! Well done for the Bristol event. I very much look forward
to seeing you at the Bracknell Computer Fair (11th Dec). Yes it is
pretty tough. The Computer Fairs are a  Windows sharp end. However,
the Bracknell traders and many attenders have got a bit used to seeing
me there over the years. One of the notable comments I got a while
back was from a trader I know who sells CDs (and *very* occasionally
Ubuntu CDs).
When I said 'Hi, how's it gong?' He replied, 'Ok. How much is Free
Software today?'
I enjoyed that.
