[LRUG] Dojo Logistics

Hi all,
The Dojo meeting is fast approaching (it's on Wednesday, please register
with Skills Matter: http://skillsmatter.com/event/ajax-ria/lrug-sep and then
sign up to a group for the Dojo:
and we need to sort out some logistics.

We're going to have 3 groups, so we'll need 3 laptops.  Thus I'm looking for
some volunteers (more than 3 for redundancy) to prep their laptops before
hand and make sure they have the appropriate display adapters with them on
the night.

Laptop Prep:

Ruby 1.8.6
Gems: cucumber, flog, rake
Matt Wynne's minesweeper dojo code:
http://github.com/mattwynne/kata-minesweeper/tree/master (this is the
problem we'll be Dojo-ing with)
an text editor of some kind (not wishing to start an editor holy war, but
something most people can use straight off is what we want, so emacs, a vi
descendant or fancy bloated IDE are probably not really appropriate for this
sort of thing - something simple like TextMate, SciTE, UltraEdit, E are
git (so that each pair can commit as they go and we can push them to the
LRUG github repo once we're done.  People can then "replay" the DOJO to
learn about refactoring etc...)

Display adapters:

The projectors that Skills Matter are providing take VGA input, so you'll
need a <whatever your laptop has> to VGA adapter.  Chances are the 3rd
screen (I think Matt Wynne is providing it) will take VGA too, but I'll let
Matt confirm that.
