Who runs the Staffs list?
The list owner is "ozzy(a)cowmob.nu" but this apparently goes to
the wrong person.
There's been very little traffic and there's no website, so unless
someone steps forward to take things over, I propose that we remove
staffs from lug.org.uk.

The purpose of this e-mail is to invite you to attend to the 3rd edition
of FOSDEM. This edition will take place on the 8th and 9th of
February 2003 in Brussels (see http://www.fosdem.org for more info).
The previous editions encountered a huge success. More than 1600 people
attended to presentations given by well-known speakers such as Richard
Stallman, Miguel De Icaza, DJ Adams, Philip Hazel in 2002, and FOSDEM 2003
will try to be even more successful thanks to numerous presentations done by
programmers of leading Open Source and Free Software projects.

And many others, ...
Several Free or Open Source Software projects have decided to hold a meeting
during FOSDEM. It is a great occasion to meet core developers from GNOME,
GNUstep, KDE, Mozilla, embedded software and PostgreSQL.
Moreover, the Free Software Award will be handed out during the FOSDEM 2003
by Richard Stallman and other members from the Free Software Foundation.
FOSDEM's goal is to provide Free Software and Open Source developers and
communities the opportunity to learn and discuss the latest developments
in the Free and Open Source arena and to promote the development of Free
and Open Source solutions.
The speakers mainly talk about technologies and make technical speeches.
The event is totally free, but we encourage you to support FOSDEM if you
appreciate the event and want it to continue in the same spirit. More
information about the FOSDEM support operation at:
We hope to see you there.
I have tried to get hold of the original guy who started the lug and am looking to get this moving, I am proposing that we get this going. Anyone with me?

Hi, I live in Malvern (near Worcester) and I hope you will not mind my making this posting. I'm sorry too if it has violated any posting guidelines you might have (in which case please be reassured that I will not be making any further posting).
I have an as new SUN Ultra 10 440Mhz for sale as described below. I have also advertised it on ebay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2054135095 with a starting bid of £375 and a 'buy-it-now' of £475 but for someone local I would accept £439 and close the sale early as a 'buy-it-now' to save the hassle of dealing with someone a long way away. The auction started 14 Sep 02 and closes 19 Sep 02.
The system specification is:
* Sun ULTRA 10 440MHz (as new, mint condition)
* 512 MB RAM
* 2x 9.1GB Hard Drives
* SCSI card
* Ethernet card
* 24x CD ROM drive
* AS new Type 6 SUN keyboard & mouse
* SUN 17" monitor as new too
* Full media packs for SOLARIS 2.6 and 2.7
* With all software & hardware manuals which includes the Solaris Bonus Software package.
Everything is in immaculate condition and I am only selling it because I now have another Sun ULTRA 10 provided by my employer in a new job! Sorry there are no photos at the moment - I don't have a digital camera but I'll try and borrow one. In the meantime you are welcome to come and look at the system up and running.
With many thanks,
