Looks good, doesn’t it? Half the machines were donated by Trinity School and we bought some cast offs from a local school too. We stuck some ram in them last year and they are still excellent machines.

We took off windows and they are running Ubuntu 12.04 and they fly. If you have an old PC in the house, think about switching to a Ubuntu to give your PC a new lease of life. Some German cities are giving our free ubuntu CDs to help their citizens keep their computers running for a bit longer.

Well done phil and tim for arranging it. The explorers try to do only one costly thing per term and it’s brilliant to see them mixing up a might at the bowling with ice cream making (last week) and a Halloween party next week. Plus map reading, pioneering and all sorts.

And the explorers are back

I popped in at the end and found this chaos. They seemed happy so all good.

Work never stops at the hut

Here’s what we found after Theme Park Camp. JP busily concreting along the side of the hut and replacing the slabs that had broken.

You might not always notice the improvements but we’re making the place better all the time. But no. We can’t stop it smelling of ‘hut’.

Summer camp blogs

Apologies for the lack of a summer camp blog. The site had no mobile signal and there were no hotspots locally.  Hopefully you kept an eye on our Storify page that we’ve just updated again. Instagram pics uploaded occasionally when the wind changed and our phones got a bit of connection, here it is if you missed it (photos and videos to follow during the week):
