Not big news here but I spoke with the owner of a small computer store

Meeting with him tomorrow at 17:00 GMT. Nothing big but a small chip
in LibO's direction.

Great news.

Independent computer stores could be a great vector for LibO adoption. And yes, they can make a bit 
of money from it--while the software is free, it's fair to charge a small fee for the installation 
service, and from the perspective of customers, that is a significantly less expensive option than 
a proprietary office suite's license fee alone.

Keep us posted how it goes; perhaps we can develop an efficient, repeatable process out of your 
experience! (Document it in the wiki, please!)
