FYI - something cool that we may want to let folks know about.

---------- Forwarded message ----------

We're trying to donate 500 Ubuntu computers to Bay Area schools this
 SATURDAY... and we need your help!

 Can you lend a hand by volunteering to install Ubuntu?  Signup to
 volunteer at one of the four locations (San Francisco, San Mateo, Berkeley
 or Novato) here:

 Untangle and the ACCRC refurbishing hundreds of older/discarded computers
 that the ACCRC has collected with Ubuntu and donating them to Northern
 California schools.  We need support from the F/OSS community to help with
 the installs.  We have automated as much of the install as possible so
 anyone can help regardless of their experience level. Of course we'll get
 error messages so we need gurus also!  ...And the Mozilla Foundation is
 bringing pizza & schwag to each location!  Thanks Mozilla!

 Installfest for Schools homepage:

 Can't make the installfest but still want to help????  Help get the word
 out by blogging about it, Digg it or Slashdot it:

 Why the event is cool:

  -Helps spread F/OSS (Ubuntu, Firefox, OpenOffice & more)

  -Helps bridges the Digital Divide with underprivileged users

  -Keeps toxic computer equipment out of landfills (Aprox 25,000 pounds)

  -Is a cool community effort

 Thanks in advance for your help!
