Like most parents, I spend the school holidays in a
state of stupified exhaustion ;-/
Not bad. We moved out of our old (small, rented) house into our new
(larger, bought) house on Monday. NTL failed to turn up, but they're
due to come and wire us up today, so once we've cleared enough space
for the computers we'll have Internet access again (I'm writing this
I've just moved the main hub in the attic, and had to
move a few servers around at the same time. It all came
back up okay - once I remembered to plug the hub in ;^)
We're busy for much of August, but we should be able to make a
mid-week meeting if someone wants to suggest a date & venue.
I can make odd days. btw, if anyone is interested the new
Chester LUG are holding a meeting on the 31st August :-)
Matthew Wellings from OpenForEveryone has some business cards, I'd
like to take some from him. Then, if I hear someone complain that you
can't get a Linux laptop for £700, I can give them a card (happened at
the last Wolves LUG meet - I told him the URL, but I'd have liked to
have a card to hand over)
And not a million miles from Matthew...
