   Not sure yet what I will be able to do, but I would like to set up a
small demonstration nearer to my local area. Central Acton has a rather
dubious reputation, Ealing shopping centre near the library might be a
better place, while judging from the activity on a local forum Chiswick
might be more productive, although there is no central focus along the High
   It would be nice to have some freebie discs to offer, and some sort of
hardware that visitors could test, although that may not be possible.
