Who was there
Via IRC only
HeatherStern and JaredBelkus fail to convince his computer's insane BIOS to allow truly dual booting; the BIOS will have to be used as the OS switcher. Drat. We tried everything. We swear!
NeilFerguson has successfully booted Gnoppix.
MikeEvans got his serial mouse working in X, with editorgal's help
ThomasAdam helped RichardMace compile some kernel modules against 2.4.27 under Debian.
ThomasAdam helped ChrisAitken (ish) with an ALSA issue. 2.6.9 successfully installed too.
AdrianBridgett helped IanBrazier get K3b burning, and made an annoying cd for Adrian's boss.
StephenDavies donated the LUG banner which was proudly displayed on the conveniently placed display boards.
TonyWhitmore press-ganged TomBragg, NeilFerguson and RobSmith into tearing out and folding jewel case inlays for InfoPoint the following day.
HugoMills tried building a box out of random SCSI parts, and utterly failed to persuade it to boot the CD he got from AlanPope.
HugoMills, SeanGibbins, NickWhitelegg and RichardGellman, with input from StephenDavies, between them managed eventually to solve LisiReisz's Grub problems.
HugoMills explained device nodes to Kim, and some of the problems of mesh networking to JolandaTromp (it's all to do with Russian trains, you see...)
TonyWhitmore and NeilFerguson relaxed as JaredBelkus did not need to install a USB mouse or have anything important fixed at all
TomBragg finally persuaded Bind 9 to replicate zones correctly and got mailscanner installed.
