Here ye, here ye...
Successful in Queensland...Show me how days are coming to Melbourne!
Whats a "Show me how day?"
Basically it is where we invite around 5-7 people who are waiting to receive
systems along to Computerbank for half a day. The people we invite
are those deemed to have basic to intermediate skills on a computer and
therefore don't need as much training.
We also invite as many volunteers as we can muster for the day with the
prerequisite that they are fairly experienced on the linux desktop (KDE) and
know how to mount their floppies. :)
Throw everyone in the same room, add computers....
Introduce everyone, Computerbank and Linux and ...
<stir if required>
Show me how begins!
The added bonus to the "Show me how day" is that recipients will get to help
final configure their puters (like setting hostname, adding users and
installing openoffice if it is required)...and take them home on the same day!
The first of the BIG Show me how days will occur on December 7th - commencing
at 1pm. It will go til 5pm.
Another notice will be sent closer to this date - but if you are interested
in attending - let me know as early as possible. I've got a feeling that this
is going to be a popular day. :)
We are running a smaller pilot in our work for the dole program next Friday
November 8th starting at 2pm. If you are interested in helping out on this
one - get in contact real quick as I can accommodate only 1 other person.
