Yes it is a long way to travel.

Why don't you see if anybody else is in your area?

What I always think is, if you look in WH Smith you will find reasonable 
numbers of copies of Linux magazines, often placed in front of the windoze 
stuff. Last time I looked the large Tesco on Ocotal Way was stocking one of 
them too. My reasoning is, if people were not buying the magazines then the 
shops would not continue to stock them, and the magazines would not sell 
unless people were running Linux. Therefore, there's loads of people running 
Linux computers in every town.

So, does anybody want to start coordinating some meetings in Trowbridge with 
Dave G?

Dave F

As an afterthought, I did a little Google search and found
Maybe give them a call and see if anybody wants to start something up?
