The serve 45 -50 children per day. They have only one PC for all of the kids to use. The ages of the children range from 6 months to kindergarten age. 20:15 < etank> some of the kids there would be too small to work on the PC 20:15 < montgoej> if they're all about the same specs I'm willing to help compile a custom kernel, then we could lock the kernel package and it would go a lot faster 20:15 < etank> but the older ones would really get some use out of them 20:15 < etank> especially if we load the educational apps on them 20:16 < bkingx> I would like to host a Clean and Load Party sometime. 20:16 < etank> [idea] compile a custom kernel and lock the kernel package. 20:16 < Ubuntu-Ky> IDEA received: compile a custom kernel and lock the kernel package. 20:16 < bkingx> I have about 18 of the machines here that need some TLC 20:16 < etank> [idea] host a Clean and Load Party sometime. 20:16 < Ubuntu-Ky> IDEA received: host a Clean and Load Party sometime. 20:17 < etank> would that organization be one the we would be willing to donate machines to? 20:17 < bkingx> etank: the wiki that has the package lists....how complete is it? 20:17 < etank> I am going to get a call on it tomorrow 20:18 < etank> bkingx: i really just copied the educational stuff from the edubuntu site 20:18 < bkingx> As much as I would like to give these things away, it seems that this age group may be a bit young. 20:19 < etank> from experience, i have a preschooler and he spends quite a bit of time on the iMac we have 20:19 < etank> mostly playing games 20:19 < etank> for that age though we would really want to lock down the desktop so that they dont destroy all the settings and stuff. 20:20 < montgoej> etank: I agree 20:20 < X626> Honestly, I don't think they are too young. A lot of younger kids seem to pick up how to do things easy. I don't think it would be a problem to give them some of the PCs. 20:20 < bkingx> Locking down, agreed. Age group, I think we need to think a bit more. 20:21 < etank> think about the people that work there too 20:21 < bkingx> But I'll go along with whatever we decide. 20:21 < etank> they could use the PCs with the kids 20:21 < etank> should we hold off on the idea until we get some of the machines done? 20:22 < bkingx> Yeah...and see how they actually perform. 20:23 montgoej agrees 20:23 < etank> the good thing is that if they are slow the kids would not know the difference 20:23 < bkingx> LOL...true 20:23 < etank> lets try the vote thing 20:23 < bkingx> OK 20:23 < etank> [vote] waiting until we have some of the machines built before deciding who they go to. 20:23 < Ubuntu-Ky> Please vote on: waiting until we have some of the machines built before deciding who they go to.. 20:24 < bkingx> +1 20:24 < Ubuntu-Ky> +1 received from bkingx. 1 for, 0 against.

If you see something that has the wrong wording or is out of date try to fix it. 20:33 < X626> montgoej: Lucky. We get out on June 6. 20:33 < etank> X626: give it a try 20:33 < montgoej> lol 20:33 < montgoej> I'll be right back, sorry I gotta leave so much 20:33 < etank> the good thing is that if you make a mistake it is easy to fix 20:33 < Koji-Mura> Well, I need to leave. I'll catch you all later. 20:34 < etank> later guys 20:34 < bkingx> Cya! 20:34 < Koji-Murasameemail@example.com  20:34 < etank> next topic 20:34 < etank> [topic] Advocacy ideas 20:34 < Ubuntu-Ky> New Topic: Advocacy ideas 20:35 < bkingx> I'll work on getting the web page looking good. 20:35 < etank> what are we doing as a team that we can do better at 20:35 < etank> and then 20:35 < etank> What can we do that we are not already doing? 20:36 < etank> this goes both for bring people to the team and for getting the word out about Ubuntu 20:37 etank ques the crickets again 20:37 < X626> I really don't know. I've tried what all I could think of around herer, but no one is interested. 20:38 >>> Pat40503firstname.lastname@example.org 20:38 < etank> hello Pat40503 20:39 < etank> what about doing the demo at the book store bkingx 20:39 < bkingx> I think public events are good 20:40 < bkingx> Maybe a booth at a festival or something. 20:40 < etank> what kinds of public events 20:41 < etank> did you see the mailing about a booth at the Ky state fair? 20:41 < bkingx> Like the book store, festivals, etc 20:41 < etank> how would that go over 20:41 < bkingx> No? Might be good. 20:42 < bkingx> I think giving away CD's, literature, and a raffle for a computer might work out good at one of the festivals. 20:42 < etank> i've never been to the state fair so i have no idea what it is like 20:43 < etank> we talked about doing another install fest 20:43 < etank> did we ever set a date for that 20:43 < X626> Sometime in September, I think. 20:43 < bkingx> Maybe we could do something in the mall? Partner up with a store? 20:44 < bkingx> Just thinking out loud here. 20:44 < montgoej> back 20:45 < bkingx> I have some contacts with the organizers for relay for life. 20:46 < bkingx> Might be a good place for a booth. 20:47 < montgoej> some of the bigger book stores might be willing to let us do something if it could help sell some Linux books/magazines, etc. 20:48 < montgoej> If we show someone beryl first, they'll probably be willing to watch the rest, at least from personal experience 20:48 < bkingx> agreed 20:48 < bkingx> Show something exciting and neat to pull them in. 20:48 < X626> Yeah. People seem to be very fascinated with Beryl. 20:48 < montgoej> beryl gets people glued to the screen, then we can show them the stuff that seems more...normal 20:49 < etank> well there is one bookstore here that has already mentioned us doing a demo 20:49 < montgoej> which one is that? 20:50 < etank> Half Priced Books 20:50 < montgoej> ah 20:50 < montgoej> Never been there myself, but they sound cool if they're willing to let us do a demo 20:50 < etank> they had a tarrot card reader in there the day bkingx and I went 20:50 < Pat40503> also some used book stores around too Black Swan Lexington 20:51 < Pat40503> Glovers in Lexington too and some more 20:51 < etank> what if we were to have some more IRL meetings 20:51 < etank> i was in Cicis Pizza tonight 20:51 < bkingx> I think that would be good. 20:51 < etank> dont they have free wifi 20:51 montgoej wants more IRL meetings 20:52 < montgoej> and Cicis is good :) 20:52 < bkingx> We can brainstorm some more. 20:52 < bkingx> What?? They do in the one on Nicholasville. 20:52 < montgoej> I'm not sure if I'd be able to come to the IRL meetings every time, but there's a good chance, at least this summer 20:52 < bkingx> Nich Rd. 20:52 < etank> that and we would have the chance to show people what Ubuntu is if we are out in public 20:53 < montgoej> if we do more IRL meetings, we need a "secretary" who can pass on the ideas to the IRC channel for those who can't be there 20:53 < bkingx> Agreed! Bring some laptops and how them off. 20:53 < etank> bkingx: what do you mean 20:53 < etank> i was asking if they have wifi 20:53 < etank> i didnt mean that they dont have it 20:54 < montgoej> I've got Beryl and all on my laptop now too 20:54 < bkingx> Oh...I read it as they didn't have it. 20:54 < bkingx> Sorry 20:54 < bkingx> Panera would be a good one too. 20:54 < bkingx> OH...and Lexington Green, right outside the bookstore on the lower level. 20:55 < etank> we need to think of place to meet outside of Lex too 20:56 < etank> Da'Ville, Harrodsburgh, etc 20:56 < bkingx> Frankfort? G-town? 20:56 < etank> there you go 20:56 < bkingx> Someplace central. 20:56 < montgoej> Danville...harrodsburg is good :) 20:56 bkingx bets he has to give etank a ride! 20:56 < etank> i bet we would even be able to get klb out in the sun if it were closer to him 20:56 < montgoej> Frankfort is nice and close too 20:56 < DJTrey> bowling green 20:56 < klb> hmm 20:56 < bkingx> LOL, DJTrey 20:57 < montgoej> Cincinnati! 20:57 etank is wondering if montgoej is really with the Ohio team after that. 20:57 < montgoej> lol 20:57 < bkingx> :0 20:57 < montgoej> everyone threw out ideas, I thought I'd throw one out too 20:57 < bkingx> So lets pencil in about eary June then 20:58 < etank> what if we were to try to have an IRL once a month 20:58 < montgoej> sounds good 20:58 < bkingx> We can hammer a date in the next few IRC meetings. 20:58 < montgoej> I've gotta go(for real this time...hopefully once I'm out for summer I'll actually be able to stay here longer) 20:58 < etank> bkingx: if we get enough members in the IRC meeting 20:58 < montgoej> see ya 20:58 < email@example.com ["Leaving"] 20:59 < bkingx> No doubt. 21:00 < etank> that is the hardest part for me 21:00 < etank> trying to get more of the members involved 21:00 < X626> Yeah, I'd say it is. I wonder why so many aren't active. 21:00 < bkingx> Summer will tend to slow down, for sure. 21:01 < bkingx> It will pick back up in the Fall. 21:01 < Pat40503> What is an IRL meeting? Just a guess a Live meeting with people? 21:01 < etank> IRL = In Real Life 21:01 < bkingx> But we can use this time to do some work. 21:01 < bkingx> Wiki, Web etc. 21:02 < klb> I really am a real person, too 21:02 < etank> no he isnt 21:03 < etank> he is a machine 21:03 < etank> any other topics for tonight? 21:03 < klb> actually...
