I thought I'd alert you to a thing I'm working up with the Free Range
Network - "The Community Linux Mobile Training Centre".
I thought some of the LUGgers might like to give it a little publicity to
help get the project working, and then perhaps even hire it out one day!
The project proposal is at:
Basically we wanted to develop a mobile ICT training centre that could
operate in a community centre, or in the middle of a field at gatherings sich
as Glastonbury or the Big Green Gathering. This proposal is what we came up
with. We've tried to get funding from funding bodies for four years, but they
really have problems funding something as vague as 'training people to do
anything they want to do'.
If you'd like more details please get in touch.

and that goodness, righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity
with God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
