Subject: Hi Guys

Good Day Fellow zim-ubuntu-ans!
Im new to the Zimubuntu group, and would like to become an active member
of Ubuntu Zim LoCo Team. 
A short introduction if i may, my name is kalpesh, I currently work as a
sysad for yoafrica/webdev. I will be volunteering to look after our new zim
ubuntu repository box with regards to connectivity in our yoafrica data
our main goal is to keep it live 24/7...
This repository is currently being setup by Enet Solutions... and should be
very shortly! there are just a couple more storage issues that need
sorting.. ..
Since we are preparing to launch the repository....i have had an idea for
that im hoping might be of interest to keen ubuntu members. 

On the zimbabwe team forum site, theres was a topic which discussed trying
distribute ubuntu cd's as a free service. Some of the ideas that can up, 
were for people to send in self addressed and stamped envelopes with a blank
I have been stewing around an idea to create our first freedom toaster in
for some time now.,,, if you're not sure what it is..please see HYPERLINK
the freedom toaster is a project started by mark shuttleworth.. to help
ubuntu and other open source software in an easy convenient way.
I am very keen to get a freedom toaster in zimbabwe going. I think it would
be a great
achievement in getting open source "out there". i am a very technically
minded person,
and can do most of the work with regards to computer components and
however, if there is anyone else who would be interested in helping out, you
are most 
welcome to join in. We will need various people to do various things... from
to painting.. to finding sponsors... to sourcing a location for it... to
donating equipment..
to finding people to donate... to advertising.. (so we can be in the ubuntu
culture spotlight)
..so if you are interested.. and can help in any way possible.. please do
get in contact.
At the moment, alot of people are tied down by various work and economic
issues (myself 
included) so, we're not planning to rush the construction or planning. But i
think a start,
with a discussion would be great :)
keep well... and see you all in cyberspace!
