I’ve been meaning to start a thread where people post good news links for progress in the Open Source movement. I thought this might be a good place for it.

I’ve been working on a new mission statement that will give people a clearer idea of what we’ve been up to and what we want to achieve. It’s now up on the wiki at http://docs.psand.net/twiki/bin/view/CLAN/MissionStatement Go take a look!
26 October, 2003 Dear Computer People I attach the latest quotation in the battle of quotations between LinuxIT and Evesham. Once Linux got word that the equipment might be bought from Evesham, they submitted a lower-priced quotation that meets our specification. As this is the case and time is drawing on, and unless I hear […]
Hi all. Just to let you that the first St Pauls Unlimited ICT sub-group meeting is at 6.00pm on Thursday 6th November in St Agnes Lodge, St Agnes Park, Thomas Street, St Pauls, BS2 9LJ.

Hi all, things have been a bit slower this month as some of us have been busy with organising the training at the ECC which has been a lot of fun. We didn’t set a date for the next meeting at the last, so I’d like to suggest that we do the next one on […]
These people might be interested in funding some of the work we’re doing. http://mysociety.org/mysoc_guidelines.php3

I’ve not seen them myself, but apparently the Works bargain bookshop opposite "John Lewis" in Broadmead are selling Introductory Linux books published by Dorling Kindersley at a £1 a copy! One for the Xmas stocking.
Yesterday we got into the ICT Suite thanks to Nigel from Easton Community Association ( trivia: Nigel used to be in Orchestral Manoeuvres in The Dark!) and with the help of Tall Paul we got all the machines dual booting between their default Windows OS and Suse. Partitioning was fast, the install was quick and […]
Hurrah! We’ve got the multia mounted and running the new antenna at the ECC; it’s all up and working ! 🙂 We still can’t see it from the lab tho :/ Lessons learnt: calling a rigger (£60.00) with all the tools makes the process easy. The LDF 450 cable is good but hard to use […]
This is an invitation to anyone out there with an interest in media content to contribute to a forum that sets out to promote, develop and encourage collaboration and support of ideas – for creative media projects. This could be:- for an internet based website or for a local wireless network involving training or learning […]
It was raised at the meeting that we could either run a big event like last time at the ECC, or run smaller 2 hour training/giveaway sessions at the office. What’s everyone’s opinion on this? Personally, I think the smaller sessions at the office will be better. + Smaller groups mean less volunteers + No […]
Another thing that came up at the last meeting is the question of what constitutes membership? The Rules of the Bristol Wireless Community Co-Operative Ltd. state: 5. The Committee may admit to membership any person or corporate body, or nominee of any unincorporated organisation or firm, who or which is living, working or active within […]
As agreed at the last meeting we are about to erect another antenna on the Easton Community Centre. This will increase the signal range and accommodate a wider proportion of Easton. The rigger has given us a price of £60.00 and he can fit it on Thursday 14/10/03. We will be making up some cables […]

All day conference, commencing with coffee and registration at 9.15am and finishing at […]
