[19:14] <MootBot> New Topic:  Ubuntu Advocacy
[19:15] <akgraner> ok so what new and exciting things is everyone doing to further the case
[19:15] <akgraner> of the Ubuntu Project?
[19:15] <akgraner> hey holstein update on your stuff..
[19:16] <akgraner> in case someone hasn't heard what you have been doing
[19:16] <holstein> on the church project, so far so good
[19:16] <holstein> 3 machines running ubuntu
[19:16] <akgraner> how many people are using the machines
[19:16] <holstein> printing suppport for the windows boxes
[19:16] <_marx_> hum, handed out one live cd to a co-worker with a p0rn infected laptop
[19:16] <akgraner> and is it for both the church and the school
[19:16] <holstein> i would say about 20 or so
[19:17] <holstein> 3 teachers, and whatever the students need to do
[19:17] <holstein> just for the learning center at the school
[19:17] <holstein> i'm going to give it a while
[19:17] <holstein> and follow up
[19:17] <akgraner> great!
[19:17] <holstein> akgraner and i had already discussed getting feedback from the staffers
[19:18] <akgraner> hey _marx_ that is great... you were able to help with that...
[19:18] <holstein> maybe some pictures and all that
[19:18] <akgraner> holstein, that will be awesome..
[19:19] <holstein> no hurry, it will be nice to see how they like it after a month of so of use
[19:20] <holstein> [ACTION] follow up on woodland hills learning center project
[19:20] <MootBot> ACTION received:  follow up on woodland hills learning center project
[19:21] <_marx_> akgraner: it's a teaser; he'll be able to do email and regular, simple web browsing from the live cd but to access his addiction he'll need an install
[19:21] <_marx_> so maybe it's not so helpful...
[19:21] <akgraner> _marx_, oh that is sneaky..  :-)
[19:23] <holstein> where do you guys get those live CD's anyways?
[19:23] <holstein> do you just order them from the site?
[19:23] <akgraner> I order them for the team then we pass them out as needed
[19:23] <akgraner> we gotta get permission to get them in bulk since we still aren't approved
[19:23] <holstein> i would like to get involved in that aat some point
[19:24] <akgraner> :-)
[19:24] <holstein> ill throw some cash at it
[19:24] <akgraner> no cash needed
[19:24] <holstein> yeah?
[19:25] <holstein> moving on?
[19:25] <ScottTesterman> In case you don't know, ShipIt approves you for larger numbers as you contribute more to Ubuntu.
[19:25] <akgraner> ScottTesterman, yes, but we aren't an approved LoCo so ordeing a couple hundred requires approval
[19:25] * BugeyeD_3G (n=BugeyeD_@ has joined #ubuntu-us-nc
