    Re: Goals for the Ohio Team

    I've heard of some libraries making copies of The OpenCD available to patrons. If any local libraries are already giving OpenCDs out, it ought to be an easier job getting a stack of Ubuntu CDs next to them.

    If libraries aren't giving out OpenCDs, they might be open to doing so; and again use this as an opportunity to get Ubuntu in the door, too.

    In addition to pointing people toward the forums, I'd encourage you to encourage all new users to sign up for a mailing list (either the OhioTeam list, or a regional team list, if one exists). I generally detest forums; and since I spend the bulk of my day in my inbox, I greatly prefer mailing lists.

    I'm all set for handing out some Ubuntu cds... except that I have to wait for 3-4 months for cds from ShipIt, since I ordered more than the standard packages. And that's if they even approve my request at all. ^_^

    Have you ordered before? They sometimes won't send if you got some before.

    I won't be working Tuesday, so we'll take a trip down to the library to see what I can set up.

    It has taken about 4-5 weeks to get mine in the past. Don't give up on the request if they deny you, they are just transitioning to edgy.

    I thought that if we were giving out CD's we burn, why not give ourselves a plug as well. This label was created with glabels program and I can eMail the file to anyone who wants it. When we get our website up, we could add that address to the cd cover as well.
