How about a server & security demos demonstrating good performance on
not to hi-spec equipment.

eg. Email server
	Two machines, send / receive to / from each other
	(could put in a private DNS lookup and spoof addresses for some variety).

	What volume of emails can be processed ?
	Requires a nice graphic showing i
	'Number of email's sent'
	'Number of email's received'
	and 'Network activity' (so we can blame the network for being unable to
	keep up if we need to)

okay, I was thinking more 'presentations' rather than tutorials.  I've got no idea what
we might do presentations about but others might.  (Maybe we could use it to screen 'Revolution OS' ;)

Robert, do you know if our hiring of the room would allow members to set up stalls to tout for
business ?

Have fun,
