Hi everyone,

As I mentioned at the last CLUG meeting, I'm organising an Install Fest for
Saturday the 27th of September, a week after Software Freedom Day.  The bulk
of the details are on http://softwarefreedomday.org/teams/Canberra and anyone
can edit them by registering, but the salient facts are:

Where: ANU CSIT Room 101 (where the regular monthly meetings are held)
When: 10AM -> 3PM Saturday 27th September
What we will have:
~ * Plenty of power cables and power boards.
~ * Desks to set up on.
~ * Network to mirror.linux.org.au and mirror.aarnet.edu.au.
~ * Tea, coffee and snacks (at reasonable prices)

What we need:
~ * People to come along and help.
~ * A few computers for demonstrating working Linux systems and software (e.g.
MythTV, games, Stellarium, etc.)

Any level of experience is enough - even if you may think yourself still a
Linux newbie, having people to help other people is what will make the Install
Fest work.  No-one is expected to be an expert in everything, and having more
people means there's more likelihood that you'll have encountered that problem
that's niggling at someone else.

Please let me know, or add your name to the page above in the Install Fest
section, if you're able to come and help.

Please also let me know if you will be bringing any other people with systems
that will need installing.  The biggest question to me at this stage is "how
many people will come along?".  We'll be advertising this at the Software
Freedom Day a week beforehand but the more advance notice I get the happier
I'll be :-)

I'll also have fliers available soon that people can print and distribute to
their families, friends, work-mates, and other unsuspecting or long-suffering

Thanks in advance,
