indeed its encouraging to note that we having positive feedback from the
WFS ,now i have encountered three cases  in Western emanating from Kakamega
pilot ,managed to reinstall the same having formatted their PCs , For the
Mombasa one because of the logistical matrix involved i explored
possibility of sending the DVD via dropbox n other large file sending
methods but she could not understand how to go about that .
 My Question:    Now that we are in the process of updating our Kiwix is it
still prudent to continue re installing that one ?

,
regards

bruce.
