Nothing too serious. 21:06 < tyche> Ubuntu 9.04 Beta freeze is in effect now. The Beta release will be Thursday. 21:06 < MatthewMPP> I tried to sign up on the web page a half hour a go. Hit a snag.

Thanks. 21:08 < tyche> OK, next announcement: Everyone should take a look at the Ubuntu Forums news in todays UWN issue. It lays out some of the major things about the forums that everyone should know. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter/Issue134 21:08 < tyche> Also, There is a good interview with Jono Bacon the Ubuntu Community Mgr. who works for Canonical here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/interviews-28/interview-with-jono-bacon-ubuntu-community-manager-712635/ 21:09 < tyche> And on the lighter side: Here is a quick little read that gave several of us working on the UWN a good laugh today. It'll only take you about 5 mins. at the most. http://www.ubuntuproductivity.com/journal/uncategorized/03/2009/top-10-reasons-ill-never-use-ubuntu/ 21:10 < tyche> scott_ev: Do you have anything new on the bug front to go over? 21:10 -!- Adler [email@example.com] has quit [Connection reset by peer] 21:10 < scott_ev> not tonight 21:10 < tyche> KK 21:10 < scott_ev> well 21:11 < tyche> Well? 21:11 < scott_ev> I'm putting together a presentation.

Computer games 21:15 < tyche> Some of the ideas we need are ways to improve our media exposure, how to get the flyers out better, game ideas, etc. 21:15 < scott_ev> we could be done by then, I think 21:15 < Adler> Hi Guys (Gals?) 21:15 < Siph0n> and having sort of a lan party / release party 21:15 < xHans> for a 90 minute presentation we're open for either meeting starting in June and probably earlier on the west side 21:15 < xHans> moin moin Adler 21:16 < scott_ev> wb adler 21:16 < xHans> tyche: whoever is working on promo for jaunty parties should also help with ABLEconf promo 21:16 < tyche> The idea of games is interesting, but might take a bit of planning. Put it up on the wiki. 21:16 < tyche> xHans: not a bad idea. 21:16 < xHans> and we'll push the ABLEconf promo channels to help with the jaunty release promo 21:16 < xHans> we should be promoting Free Software gaming at every event :) 21:16 < scott_ev> true 21:17 < Adler> I'm looking to Jaunty not seizing up my notebook. 21:17 < tyche> I saw, on the ABLEconf mailing list, that you've got one person interested in doing fliers, already 21:17 < tyche> Adler: Well, the beta should be out Thursday, and you can check it out then. 21:17 < tyche> LiveCDs are great for that. 21:18 < tyche> Any other ideas floating around? 21:18 < scott_ev> tyche: I think he already installed it, right Adler 21:18 < kennymc0> we could have a pool party at your apartment for the release party like scott_ev keeps mentioning :) 21:18 < xHans> tyche: we have a bit of a promo channel in place, but haven't exercised it since September 21:19 < tyche> I didn't know that. Or, maybe I just wasn't paying attention (you know us Scots. We pay as little as possible). 21:20 < Adler> I'll wait for the final. Linux distros are coming out all over, and I never have been satisfied with WiFi support outside of running a usb device. I'm running now on Cox ethernet - love that speed. But, the last Ubuntu was not good for notebooks. 21:20 < MatthewMPP> xHans, okay I think scott and I can have it ready by May 14, 2009. I will keep you up to date on our progress. 21:20 < tyche> Adler: I'll agree with you there. 21:21 < xHans> MatthewMPP: OK, that's the one night I can't yet say we have room on the schedule 21:21 < Adler> Run Linux, Run Free ist meine Devise! 21:21 * xHans needs to email Hurricane 21:22 < tyche> xHans: they have it up by May 14 means that it would be ready for any time after that. 21:22 < xHans> hmmm, Ubuntu install CDs as currency... 21:22 < tyche> That should give you some flexibility. 21:22 < xHans> tyche: yeah, just letting them know that particular night might not work out :) 21:22 < tyche> xHans: do you have any announcements for us, tonight? 21:22 < tyche> Yep 21:23 < xHans> tyche: a couple 21:23 < Adler> I've not tried the live CD of any distro after openSuSE 11.1, which I run know. 21:23 < xHans> GNU/Linux classes are starting this week, http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/757 21:23 < xHans> I think we're full up at MCC, but EMCC had some openings 21:23 < Adler> What would we learn there? 21:24 < Adler> Computing is my hobby, I do Linux ites, Forums and Blog. 21:24 < xHans> Adler: they're all GNU/Linux classes this quarter ranging from intro to sysadmin to security 21:24 < xHans> there might also be a shell scripting class in there 21:24 < scott_ev> sweet 21:25 < xHans> in the Fall we should again have OpenOffice.org, some webdev stuff and PHP and Python classes 21:25 < kennymc0> sounds like something for everyone 21:25 < MatthewMPP> xHans, well later is fine. 21:25 < Adler> I understand that there are other places - better places - to go rather than ASU that I live next to. 21:25 < xHans> kennymc0: I'm working on Inkscape, GIMP and Blender, but don't count on that soon 21:25 < xHans> Adler: depends on what you want to study and learn 21:26 < xHans> MatthewMPP: cool 21:26 < xHans> PLUG West side this Wednesday, http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/357 21:26 < xHans> speaking of gaming :) 21:26 < xHans> PLUG Installfest this Saturday, http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/107 21:26 < xHans> The West side meeting will have a presentation on Free Software gaming 21:26 < xHans> the presentation is based on a presentation from SCaLE that got good reviews from all I've talked to 21:26 < kennymc0> cool 21:27 < xHans> in fact, the presenter from SCaLE and calimer are probably plotting on Free Software gaming stuff :) 21:27 < Adler> Well, the secrets of computing - I want to kick back and have some one so me the past, future and now. 21:27 < MatthewMPP> xHans are those the classes at MCC? I took a linux class at Chand/Gilbert a while ago that wasn't any good. 21:28 < xHans> MatthewMPP: my classes are at MCC, I haven't talked to the Gilbert instructors 21:28 < MatthewMPP> what is EMCC? 21:28 < xHans> Estrella Mountain Community College in Avondale 21:29 < xHans> we're working on an ABLEconf in Tucson, join the ABLEconf discuss mailing list if you'd like to help 21:29 < xHans> http://lists.ABLEconf.com/private.cgi/discuss-ableconf.com/2009-March/000056.html 21:29 < Adler> I did run into a guy at the hi-speed line here in Tempe and he showed me a card to enroll. I asked him for his web site / forum, but he had none. 21:30 < xHans> MatthewMPP: I think MCC's BII ( where I teach ) and EMCC are the only community colleges to offer 8 week classes, so we're the only ones starting mid-semester 21:30 < xHans> hi-speed line? 21:31 < Adler> The new metro rail in Mesa - Tempe - Phoenix. 21:31 < xHans> tyche: that's it from me for now 21:32 < xHans> Adler: ah, I thought you might mean that, but I wasn't certain and I wouldn't categorize it at hi-speed :) 21:32 < tyche> OK, Thanks, xHans. We appreciate the information. 21:32 < tyche> Is there anything else that should be brought up tonight? 21:32 < xHans> bitte 21:33 < tyche> If not, then I'll adjourn the meeting, and we can all wish johnc4510 a speedy recovery, so we can get back to a REAL meeting. :-) 21:33 < tyche> Thanks for coming, all.
