Kami Griffiths at CompuMentor has sent me this update on the status of her project. Who's got one of those Ubuntu disks to loan?

I was going through my email and realized that someone else from SF-LUG was interested in helping. I’ve added his name to the bottom of this list:


Tom Haddon, tom at greenleaftech.net

Catherine Jones, cathjone at eskimo.com

Cristina, cristina_errors at yahoo.com

Ron, rondosxx at yahoo.com



I heard back from the senior center and they aren’t interested in the donation, but there’s a housing project in the Lower Haight I’ve been working with that has old equipment (that can also be converted to Linux) as well as space to store extra equipment. They’re current PCs are 8 years old running a mixture of NT and Windows 2000 and super slow. They don’t have the admin passwords anymore so there’s not much we can do to fix them. 


I’m about to send an email to Romel to work out a time to pick up the donation, I have a friend with a pickup truck who I hope is free to help transport them. Can we schedule some time to talk? There are several details to discuss:


§         Getting the necessary Ubuntu/Edubuntu install disks

§         Schedule time to test one 

§         Scheduling the volunteers and planning that day


This is really exciting and I appreciate your help and interest in helping make this a success!
