We have an Install Fest coming up for Saturday, October 19 for just
this kind of thing. Can you wait until then?

We have previously discussed whether we want to encourage people to
bring their computers to the regular meetings if they're having
trouble with something. We mostly decided that was ok, although in
practice people rarely do. But we don't encourage doing a full
install then. It takes too long, there's always something that goes
wrong and it ends up being disruptive to the rest of the meeting. So,
I've been suggesting we do the install fests a bit more regularly,
like every 3-4 months.

Are you a student at Le Moyne? You should look up Mike Miller. He's
a professor in the Math Dept and regularly comes to our meetings.
