I don't think anyone's upset about regaining costs... Just spending in the first place...

It's a shame we don't have enough GPL premises around, that's all...

I think what's being driven at, hopefully ending all this, as Jake must feel a bit embarassed(?) (I know I did when I started something!) :-

Is there anyone lurking who knows of somewhere in Folkestone these introductory meetings can/may take place for free in the future?

How about skools, colleges, friendly wifi cafes?

When I started going to meets, I was an 'uber' newb too. I wanted to learn/experience the file structure, the 'psyche' of linux, the hard drive partitioning, the installation process, vi in action...

Just to be clear, this is *not* a splinter group. It's an attempt to use
the method of cheap introductory training to persuade people to use
Linux, and then for them to help persuade other people. The aim is to
*support* KLUG by getting more people to use Linux.
