I'm on Moriya St in the Carmel; I'd be happy to host for drinks/coffee
tomorrow (though sadly can't venture out to the Krayot in the next few
days). It can also wait for the next scheduled meeting, if there is one in
the near future.

- I'm using a 32-bit Toshiba laptop (L305) for what's it worth. I've got a
CD drive (and I've got an Ubuntu partition installed, but something isn't
- How much would a used laptop (with Linux only installed) sell for these

Thanks for your help people, and sorry about the spam.
