Who Was There
KelvinSmith & wife (for all of 30 mins)
AdamTrickett got Firefly and Amarok working at home as a result - most useful talk
AlanPope demonstrated his (lack of) prowess at xjump
AlanPope demonstrated video phone via Skype, Wifi, and his TWO eee PCs!
HugoMills explained how Linux boots, in some detail, to Fay (who actually seemed interested in it... )
AdamTrickett had a go at trying to get CliveWoodfine's Medion tablet to work. It's not working properly yet, but it looks like the udev rule needs tweaking to set up the correct nodes in /dev with the appropriate permissions.
