I am generally good at presentaitons and public speaking and I know a few
things about Linux (about 5 years exp). But yes, I haven't experience in

another, bigger opportunity (speaking to school organisers as we have a few
government contracts) presents itself.
Thanks Craige for your information and vote of support.
