Ubuntu...

#1
hmm.. just got a visit from the parcel man.. with two large boxes.. fairly large boxes... in my name... i'm thinking... i haven't bought anything from ebay in a while.. wonder what surprise is in these boxes...

So sign the thing... close the door... open boxes up.. and masses upon masses of ubuntu CD's... aproximately in the region of 450 odd CDs!! .. and I only asked for 10 :( :( :(

They also gave me two POS (thats point of sale.. not piece of s**t :p.. although they are kinda tacky) stands :(

now what do i do with 450 odd usless CD's

Feel free to give me ideas... frisby/catapult comes to mind.. hmm

would go with the school/uni thing, as there's no other place that can really distribute that many cd's to potential Linux users. Also try find a LUG that may take some off your hands, there's got to be one or more in Brum :)

hmm.. interesting suggestions... my college has just got XP running on all computing machines.. at they went through hell to do that :p show them a new OS and think the technician will strangle me :p

Fireplace.. yeh sadly i don't have one :p - woulda been cool if I did.. can just imagine my neighbour phoning the firebrigade cos they smell smoke.. they're like that... stuck up ****ers

Big party sounds like the best bet :D

That's just what I was going to suggest.
We have a LUG here in uni, and they organize install-fests and tutorial sessions for new users and people who are interested in finding out more about Linux. I'm sure a LUG would be more than happy to take some of those off your hands, especially taking into account the fact that Ubuntu is probably one of the easiest distros to use for newbies. :)
