[Nottingham] A meeting suggestion - bring your problem machines

I've noticed that a lot of the chat both on the list and in the pub after 
meetings seems to be about real sticking points that require some greater 
mindset to solve. One meeting idea that I would welcome is for everyone to 
bring along their problem machines and the collective knowledge should be 
able to sort them out! 
I'm sure I'm not the only group member who has some persistent Linux 
annoyances on particular machines; be it keymap troubles, XFree86 strife, or 
a bit of hardware that just won't play ball. Hell, I have some machines at 
work that defy all distribution installers and rescue CDs!
I believe that such a meeting would be great fun: everyone would learn a thing 
or two, brains would get exercised, machines would get exorcised (:)), and 
problems would be banished forever. 
What do folks think?
