This is a bit last minute, but if folks are available tomorrow to help
out over at CACS in San Francisco they can always use the help :)

The school year is starting at the Creative Arts Charter School, a
public charter school in SF, and so we (Partimus volunteers) will be
working there tomorrow, Saturday, August 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00
pm, at 1601 Turk Street at Pierce Street to take the first steps
toward assessing the network with an eye toward installing wifi and
Linux on the notebook computers that arrived recently:


Our goal for tomorrow is to look at the network; assess it for wifi;
assess whether we can put a server in the telco closet for a variety
of services; and then potential mass installation of Linux onto the
notebook computers.  If we are not able to mass install Linux on the
notebooks, then we might have to just take as shot at installing Linux
individually on as many of the computers as possible.  The kids start
school on Monday, so we are going to try to get as far as we can
tomorrow.  If we only take a few baby steps, that is fine.

Please bring with you copies of Ubuntu 12.04 on USB sticks and CDs, in
case we need to manually install it.  Please also bring cable testers,
screw drivers, pliers, and anything else that you would need to get
into notebook or desktop computers, triage them, and fix them.  If you
have any spare wifi routers to donate, that would also be a plus.

Our other goal is to have our special yummy pizza at 1:00 pm.

If you would like to help, please come to the corner of Turk and
Pierce, and call me or text me at 415-351-1300 as the school is quite
large.  If I don't respond right away, please understand that there
might be other people who are calling me or texting me at the same
time, and I will get to each of you as soon as I can.

Any re-tweets, re-dents, and re-posting of this email is appreciated.
