The school year is starting at the Creative Arts Charter School, a public
charter school in SF, and so we (Partimus volunteers) will be working there
tomorrow, Saturday, August 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 pm, at 1601 Turk
Street at Pierce Street to take the first steps toward assessing the
network with an eye toward installing wifi and Linux on the notebook
computers that arrived recently:


Our goal for tomorrow is to look at the network; assess it for wifi; assess
whether we can put a server in the telco closet for a variety of services;
and then potential mass installation of Linux onto the notebook computers.
If we are not able to mass install Linux on the notebooks, then we might
have to just take as shot at installing Linux individually on as many of
the computers as possible.  The kids start school on Monday, so we are
going to try to get as far as we can tomorrow.  If we only take a few baby
steps, that is fine.

Please bring with you copies of Ubuntu 12.04 on USB sticks and CDs, in case
we need to manually install it.  Please also bring cable testers, screw
drivers, pliers, and anything else that you would need to get into notebook
or desktop computers, triage them, and fix them.  If you have any spare
wifi routers to donate, that would also be a plus.

Our other goal is to have our special yummy pizza at 1:00 pm.

If you would like to help, please come to the corner of Turk and Pierce,
and call me or text me at 415-351-1300 as the school is quite large.  If I
don't respond right away, please understand that there might be other
people who are calling me or texting me at the same time, and I will get to
each of you as soon as I can.

Any re-tweets, re-dents, and re-posting of this email is appreciated.  Here
