Hey Tom,

I assume there was no response? Could we try again since this is officially
happening and we will have a booth secured for the event soon?

Press release: http://www.ubuntu-massachusetts.com/news/1/
Project page: http://linuxfund.org/projects/ubuntu/

We're also gotten press coverage! We've been
our local team leader, Martin Owens, was just
by BBC
Radio Live’s Pods and Blogs <http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/pods> show
where he talked about Ubuntu, the Ubunchu manga, and the up and coming Anime
Boston event.

Anything that System76 could provide would be greatly appreciated! A couple
of machines to borrow for demonstration purposes would be useful, but if
they're willing to really contribute, we could use anything they're willing
to spare-- hosting our button on the System76 website, donating money,
donating hardware like USB drives or a machine we could sell/aution/raffle
off, etc.

Any support would be great, so please let me know if we can partner up for
