When: 10:00 - 14:00, Saturday 5th December 2004
Where: Jamie's Computer Club, Canute Road, Southampton.
- The stand had 2 large and 1 smaller computer desk.
- We had one full-height and two half-height 3 panel display boards, supplied by Jamie's.
- We suspended our banner to the rear of the stand.
- We had three of Jamie's computers on the stand - PII 400MHz Viglen machines.
- These machines exhibited problems booting from CD, even though the BIOS supported it.
We took 20 copies of TheOpenCD and 20 copies of Knoppix in full packaging. We also took labels and CD jewel cases for an additional 20 CDs.
- We took 90 "Linux and Free Software" leaflets across 3 different colours, and 90 LUG fliers also across 3 different colours.
- We used one of the large desks for CDs and information leaflets.
- We also adorned one of the half-height stands with Linux leaflets, because we lacked the velcro to use the full-height boards.
AlanPope hooked his PC up to one of the monitors, with a selection of games, some of which proved very popular.
TonyWhitmore hooked his laptop up to another one of the monitors and exhibited Ubuntu inside a virtual machine.
- The third machine ran Knoppix, but as it only had 128MB RAM, this was very sluggish.
- We talked to the majority of visitors to the sale, but unfortunately the sale was quieter than anticipated.
We distributed 3 Knoppix CDs and 4 copies of TheOpenCD.
- We left some "Linux and Free Software" and LUG fliers with Jamie's for their sales during the week.
Afterwards, most of the volunteers adjourned to a nearby hostelry to take part in the /FutureEventsDiscussion.
