News - IRC Meeting this Sunday!
We will have the IRC channel up every Sunday from 1-5pm. So feel free to drop in.
Note: The IRC channel is now "ubuntu-georgia" instead of "ubuntu-us-ga" in following with most of the other LoCos.
This group's purpose is to help promote and support Ubuntu and Open Source Software through out the State of Georgia.
Join by adding yourself to the Launchpad page at: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-us-ga
Our mailing list is a great way to get in touch. Use it to communicate any problems, questions, or comments related to Georgia and Ubuntu.
For more information and to sign-up for our mailing list visit: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-us-ga
The #ubuntu-georgia channel on the Freenode IRC network can be used as needed for online meetings.
To get onto our IRC channel open your IRC client (if you need one you can get XChat out of Add/Remove Applications). Connect to the FreeNode Network (In XChat pull down the "IRC" menu, click "connect" and select "FreeNode"). Then join the ubuntu-georgia channel (in XChat type "/join #ubuntu-georgia" in the input box) and you are in.
IRC meetings are held ever Sunday 1-5pm ET.
Visit our [:/Meetings:Meetings page] for more meetings and meet-ups.
