<br>hi folks,<br><br>first, just want to reinforce Christian on today's event</blockquote><div><br>Yeah, and thanks to everyone who played a role in making it happen. It was really Tom Haddon and Jim Stockford who got it rolling with Kami, at least insofar as our LUG is concerned. There were a lot of people on the other end, St. Anthony's end and the City's end that made this such a success.
<br><br>Also, Daniel Gimpelevich played a really huge role in getting the FOSS boxes working. He and Jim came over to the school several times and helped get Ubuntu installed on the boxes and did trouble shooting. <br>

the FOSS element played a significant role.<br></blockquote><div><br>This is very true. We got FOSS installed on several boxes, and brought to life machines that were given up as dead by the Windows people. This is not a slam on the Windows people who were there, because they did a great job in referring people over to us, and I'm sure that they helped a lot of people, too! (I mean to the extent that you can actually *help* people with Windows, which is a question in my mind, but I don't want to sound like a GNU Linux bigot [true confessions -- I am a GNU Linux bigot, but don't tell anyone, heh])
