I definetely thought the room was too full. admittedly i came in halfway
through a talk, but it was really stuffy in there, and a good crowd of ppl
were left standing at the back, me included :( Even if the boole wasnt
full, the cinema type seating is a pain.
If the plan is bigger and better, which i would certainly hope it to be,
more space will be needed for certain. Anyway, Cobh shoulnt be _that_ much
to rent out :-P

how about a "car-boot install" :) A policy of machines never coming out of
the owners car could be made known to everyone, and should limit hassle of
missing bits'n'pieces. All that would be needed are a couple of extension
cords, cd's and ppl to do the job.
if enough installs could get done to have linux booting on most
journalists machines, publicity could be sorted for ever after :)

hehe, i agree, tho maybe resevoir dogs is taking it too far. One of the
things i would have liked last year was to talk with some of the LUGers or
other organisers, but they werent easy to spot at all. A sort of helpdesk
where anyone could come up and ask w/ever questions they wanted about
linux would be good.
