Who Was There
BobDunlop brought two boxes of computing books hoping that some of them would disappear
GraemeHilton had his laptop overheat several times and cured it by installing Ubuntu, which also cured his wireless problems!
GrahamBleach managed to give some surplus PCI graphics and video capture cards a new home. He also tried, unsuccessfully, to persuade an iBook G4 to boot the Ubuntu install image from a USB flash drive.
AlanPope spent most of the day trying to get an Open University German Language DVD to work under Linux. It had shockwave content and thus didn't work on Linux natively.
AndyRandom finally beat his aging Thinkpad into submission for use on the front desk
TonyWhitmore wrote the first draft of the Three Men on Operating Systems sketch: http://tonywhitmore.co.uk/blog/2007/02/10/i-know-my-place/
