Bristol Wireless Library

We’re building up quite a nice lending library of computer text books and philosophy of technology at the Lab, if anybody wants to do some self-instruction or just wants a riveting read. Some people have donated the cream of their book collection, while others have just brought in the dregs. 🙂

Any donations welcome!

    have you considered using the distributed library project software to give people access to this collection?

    there’s a dlp node here: – but you might want to start your own local node – though this one would work too.

    I am happy to help install and customise it as I am helping to develop this software.

    v. interesting project, looks a wee bit buggy at the moment though 🙁

    yes, true, it is buggy, and badly built, but there are plans to use the current system for the time being, and do some proper software development on it… and migrate any data into a new system.

    have a dig round for some pointers as to how we’re thinking of doing it.

    what bugs have you found?
