We haven't had much of a response, apart from Pete, Mathew at Cookies
(ie our venue), and myself.
Even if you can't make Saturday if you can help with any of the
organising, its all very much appreciated.
Its quite possible if we don't get any more helpers than I will have to
cancel the whole event ...
* If anyone has any sandwich boards, ie the upside down V boards
that we can use to publicise what we're doing - can we borrow them ?
* During the day (well morning), we can lay on demos of Linux, and
various Windows opensource applications,
* I can bring in about 15 Ubuntu 9.04 CD';s, and 20 Suse live
/install cd's of their most recent version. All these are the nice
official versions ! I also have many Linux, Ubntu magazines, which
can be used.
* It would be nice, if we do get any more helpers to also demo
various applications, showing the breadth of Software freely
available, ie the usual OpenOffice, Firefox, Inkscape, Scribus,
Gimp, to more unusual useful apps perhaps.
Again, I am happy to put some information together for the event, but do
not wish to be the only one !!!
