Thanks Jonathan.

Yes, that's the biggy isn't it?

I'm hoping that a combination of approaches will create an appropriate
level of demand:

 - developing relationships with other socially-minded organisations
 - educating people about e-waste, maybe visiting school etc.
 - nice stickers for laptop lids that brag about how green you are
 - the offer of real community support and club membership
 - the "Free Software Advantage"

Of course my hope is for it to make enough money for at least one person
to live on, but if it falls short of that it could still be a worthwhile
thing to do, I hope.
