As it turns out, we had so many people attend the KIPP San Francisco Bay
Academy site of the ACCRC - Untangle installfest that two of them left the
KIPP school and went to the St. Anthony's Foundation (SAF) event.

The ACCRC - Untangle installfest installed hundreds of boxes at 4 locations,
and the SAF event introduced about 20 people or so to FOSS.  The 20 people
were both volunteers for the Windows side of the SAF event, as well as new
users, two of whom will be getting FOSS boxes.  One of those people has
already picked up his box.  i thought that it was particularly cool that
Matt Price (one of the two to whom I referred above) left from the ACCRC -
Untangle site at the KIPP school and went to the SAF event.  He actually
guided the SAF recipient back to the KIPP school, which allowed the
recipient to drive off with a small desktop box in a bag dangling from the
handlebars of his bicycle.

This was a very rewarding event for me personally, so thanks to all of you
for making it happen.  There was a lot of really positive energy in the air
at the KIPP event, as I am sure was the case at the other four locations.
