Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.

I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!

Martin tends to fix the internet if it needs it, so it would probably live more happily in this department. Also, I think making the computers work has more in common with this group than the website group.

Yeah I think fixing the cafe's computers and Internet has more in common with this group than the website too. I don't know anything about the website and am not sure I want to. Looks complicated. There's web coding, and there's computer fixing. The fixing involves things like:

* Sourcing second hand computers and parts when the forest needs them, usually from infoseed who usually have an excess
* Installing Linux on second hand computers from infoseed, and making it so that assholes can't fuck around with the settings
* Finding a place to setup the computers. They could do with a bigger table, by the way
* Dealing with modems, routers, switches
* Running ethernet cables all over the place. Like from the forest down to infoseed.
* Repeatedly balancing on a chair in the cafe to restart all the modems and routers and the server above the kitchen when the Internet connection goes down

That sort of thing

how about:

To source and maintain the best equipment appropriate to forests multifarious needs. To one day live in the future.

- by 'source' we intend to find or recyle where possible. But consideration must be given to the urgency of the requirement and available resources.
- by 'maintain' we mean fix all things, provided it is not too time consuming.
- by 'the future' we mean, to transend from the 1990's and to actually live in the 2000's, and to really have flying cars and appartments in the clouds.

Okay I think our mission is agreed. Can we edit this thread and put the mission in the title or subtitle?
