We are in the process of migrating the site, which I hope will be done
by tomorrow, along with a mailing list and an on-line survey for
Felton residents. Currently the page to visit is

Understood. Working under the worst case scenario, if you had some
LiveCDs -- or even LiveCDs we could help burn for you if need be. Swag
would be nice, but I think it's more important to get media into the
hands of those Feltoners curious enough to try this experiment.

I can't represent Ubuntu myself because, as the project's coordinator,
I should remain distro neutral. I know of one person in S.F. I'd like
to ask come down to Felton, but I'm putting out the call now for
others.

Understood and appreciated. Thanks.
