red hat high (as in school)

Red Hat High is a week-long summer camp for rising 8th and 9th graders. This is the second year that Red Hat has done the program. Last year my contribution was giving a talk about the collaborative power of wikis to the campers.

This year, Greg is the primary organizer of Red Hat High, and I'm spending most of my day today reverting to my QA roots and helping out by testing the Red Hat High LiveCD (based on Fedora 7 with some software from the Planet CCRMA repos) in the various computer labs on NCSU's campus that will be home to the different tracks.

There's a few different hardware setups. Some work, some don't. I have a long list of notes which I'm sure will make Robin Norwood, the builder of the LiveCD, very grumpy.

Also: two of the tracks focus heavily on audio and video creation. I hope those classrooms have speakers attached to the computers, because none of the rooms I've been in do. :-P
