Hi All

My Name is Scott Stringer I am heading up Queenstown Tasmania's SFD
event on the 10th of September.  We will have a small lab of computers
setup for people to play with.  We will also be handing out cd's ubuntu
and kubuntu as well as copies of the opencd for those who are unwilling
to try a live cd, but are still interested in open source software.  We
may also run a combined install fest of sorts if we can get the
resources (people to assist).  We will also be screening "Revolution OS"
for any one interested in the history of free software/open source
We put in a request for materials from SFD but dont know if that was
successfull yet.
I will be attending the Tasmanian Communities Online Annual Conference
on the 25th and 26th of August doing a series of workshops on open
source software and in particular GNU Linux and how it can benifit the
disadvantaged in our society.  I am hoping that the Conference will
generate more interest and possibly get more Tasmanian communities
involved with SFD.  
There are 66 Online Access Centres in Tasmania serving 66 different
communities and they are ideally suited to promoting such events as SFD.
As well as acting as a point of support for members of there local
Any way wound really tight at the moment cant wait to get out there and
spread the word :)

"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both
instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly
unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of
change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of
the darkness." - Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
