We do make it clear that we're not there to provide free support for ever, 
just help people get started and maybe demonstrate techniques later, such as 
doing digital photography using Linux, which we did a couple of meetings ago. 
Last month the specific enquiry was about setting up a subversion server, 
which is something that I can offer advice upon.

Everybody is told about places such as the Kubuntu list, Wiltshire LUG etc and 
encouraged to join. Don't know if anybody has, though.



FACT - Millions of people worldwide continue to pay money to the richest 
person in the world to use his products, even though perfectly good software 
is given away completely free of charge by the open source community! I can't 
understand it either.
