Request for muscle in the cause of Linux.
This in San Francisco on Geary at Scott.
> We will be moving the Linux lab this weekend from its temporary
> storage home to its new home this Saturday. Unfortunately, I don't
> have exact times for the move, as the principal was out sick today.
> But this would be a great opportunity to help this school provide
> basic computing skills to some truly deserving, hard-working, yet
> under-privileged kids. The standardized test scores were recently
> released for last year's testing, and this public middle school ended
> up ranking very high, probably first or second, despite the fact that
> 1) the school deliberately recruits from underperforming kids; and 2)
> 75% of the kids come from households below federal poverty
> We recently received 30 chubby terminals from the Alameda County
> Computer Resource Center, which will help speed up our lab's
> performance, thus nicely displaying the power and stability of FOSS.
> I am estimating that we will be working between 10:30 am and 5 pm. As
> most of you know, the school is located at 1430 Scott Street, on the
> southeastern corner of Geary and Scott.
> Thanks either way for considering this request!
