Jul 21 19:25:40 <mikeh789> OK

Jul 21 19:28:44 <_marx_> hum, i'm still not sure how to use mootbot

Jul 21 19:29:17 <mikeh789> i can't be of any help im afraid

Jul 21 19:30:52 <_marx_> I've been swapping voicemails since last Thursday the 15th

Jul 21 19:31:07 <mikeh789> sound promising?

Jul 21 19:31:21 <_marx_> it does sound promising

Jul 21 19:32:20 <mikeh789> i don't know why more places like that aren't using ltsp server-client

Jul 21 19:32:27 <mikeh789> seems so much easier

Jul 21 19:33:08 <mikeh789> dealing with a bunch of windows boxes (public) seems like a nightmare

Jul 21 19:33:10 <_marx_> they are using some citrix solution

Jul 21 19:36:14 <mikeh789> september 5th is the tentative date for the asheville meet and greet

Jul 21 19:36:15 <_marx_> i'm thinking it could be a good location for an installfest as well

Jul 21 19:36:40 <mikeh789> and thats all i really have to offer as far as buisness

Jul 21 19:37:00 <mikeh789> so keep the updates you have coming

Jul 21 19:58:12 <mikeh789> if anyone wants them back the way they were
