Thanks for clarifying the CIT course information James. I had been
searching the CIT-website for information to confirm what was being
said earlier but now I am not quite so surprised I couldn't find any.

I agree that this would be a very beneficial thing to do during
Software Freedom Day.
Perhaps a division of forces with these types of activities (FW demo's
and Certifications) being conducted at Campuses and maybe some
freeware distrubution to passers by (knoppix etc) going on in the
Business Districts? Take the battle to the clients as it were.
.....or is that aiming a little high for the smallest territory in Oz?

I would also be very interested in attending / setting up an informal
study group such as the one James mentioned.
