I'm happy to help out with another PC for encrypted communication.

I normally bring a Laptop with win2k, firefox and thunderbird but I can 
easily organise a linux machine with SuSE 9.2 or 9.3? or some other 
distro by arrangement.

I presume we'll want to check things out in advance of the meeting.

We'll also need to cope with mail relaying issues. My ISP will only let 
me send mail when connected via its own adsl network.
