So it appears no one blogs any more? I know I haven’t.
Recently I have wanted to start writing up my thoughts the problem is I never know where to start or what to say. So for now this is me starting to write things down again.
Hopefully in the very near future I might have something useful to write again. Over the last year I have been working on some of the most amazing technology I have ever worked with oddly enough based on Microsoft C#. Its a nice language its a pity about window’s lack of a Terminal 😛 but I do get to play with shiny new toys like the Kinect and some rather amazing interactive applications.
These books were a present to our Loco from Heather Fox and Debra Williams-Cauley see for more details.
Problem with this is that the idea behind these books is they were supposed to be shared among the Loco and every one was supposed to have a chance. Our loco Ubuntu-ZA is spread all around and way way across the county. So sharing doesn’t seem like a realistic option. So I am looking for suggestions as to what we can do with these snazzy new books.
Before I requested them Maia suggested we will decide when we get them so now it is time. Possible options are
- Random raffle and give them out to the winner.
- Make it a prize for a competition such as designing our new Ubuntu-ZA T-Shirts(or any thing else we can think of)
- Insert your ideas here?
Any how I am never very good at these type of things so for now I will keep them safe until we can decide what to do with them.
Yesterday we had the Ubuntu-za release party. It great we had +- 35 people attend. One of the greatest parts of the release was one guy come to do an upgrade and found that it was friendly and welcoming so went home to go pick up the rest of his family and brought them all along.
A special thanks to Maiatoday for making this possible!!
- +-35 people
- Ubuntu cake
- Ubuntu badges
- Local Repositories (if I was to estimate it saved +- 300gigs of downloads)
- People did fresh installs, people upgraded
- People had to have their upgrades tweaked (thanks Stefeno)
- Great braai (Barbecue & and thanks Raoul)
Take a look at the pictures of the cakes and badges below after the event there was pretty much nothing left so all in all it was a pretty successful event.
Source files for the badges can be found on Spreadubuntu
