Re: [plug] Re: Computer Bank - please dont give them away.
This is an excellent idea... I am thinking in terms of a computer-club
(open to all - not just CB clients) whereby newbies could help each
other out as they learn Linux would be brilliant - probably meeting on a
Saturday Morning or some-such since not everyone is going to be able to
get net access (I am thinking this is going to be hard - although we may
yet be able to organise)
Great way to learn computing I reckon...
