    Re: Welcome to the Pennsylvania LoCo Team!

    Hi guys!

    College student from Greensburg, PA here.

    I've been using ubuntu since 9.04 on my desktop, though I haven't used it as much as I would like because of school.

    I bought a netbook (an Acer Aspire One 532H) and put 10.04 on it as soon as it was stable and have had problems with it since then. (http://bit.ly/dpOLFc that's the thread). Haven't had issues with 9.10 or any of the Derivatives of Ubuntu (jolicloud, mint,etc), but seems 10.04 doesn't like me.

    Ah, well, I like 10.04 otherwise.

    Hope to learn alot from ya and with ya. Maybe I can do something to help get a local-local chapter for me going or something.

    Re: Welcome to the Pennsylvania LoCo Team!

    Hello folks! I've been considering introducing myself to you all and getting involved in the PA LoCo, but I never quite did it until now. Just received my "Powered by Ubuntu" stickers from system76 and I was inspired to finally come and post a hello.

    I live in northern Montgomery county, nearly halfway between Allentown and Philadelphia. I'm a bit closer to Allentown. I've been using Ubuntu for about a year now and I'm installing it on everything I can. I've recently inherited a few cast-off Dell machines from the local library, and one of them is happily running Karmic as my Linux print server. I'm also experimenting with other distros like Mandriva, PCLinuxOS (KDE 4.4 ... *drool*), and SimplyMepis. One day I'd like to be able to refit old machines with Linux/Ubuntu and give them to people who have no computers.

    I'm a relative beginner with Ubuntu, but I'm a geek who loves to learn how stuff works.

    Re: Welcome to the Pennsylvania LoCo Team!

    Hello all, I'm a Pittsburgh native who loves Ubuntu. I've been tinkering since Warty, and using steadily since Jaunty. I've repeatedly tried all of the other major distros, including ubuntu based derivatives, and in the end, i always come back home to Ubuntu. I recently decided i want to start really contributing, so i picked up the LPIC Lv1 book, and i'm starting to study for my Ubuntu certification. I've never enjoyed using an operating system as much as i do Ubuntu, and i hope i can help to make it better in the future.

    I look forward to getting to know all of you, and maybe even finding a way to contribute to the community.

    Ubuntu Training Home

    Before you can test for the Ubuntu Cert, you have to already have passed the "Linux Professional Institute Level 1" exam, although I believe that is changing in the very near future. I figure, since I am mostly doing it for fun, I might as well go through the LPIC too, and learn as much as I can.

    Re: Welcome to the Pennsylvania LoCo Team!

    Hello everyone, been using Ubuntu for 3 years, and have not used any microsoft OS's for the last 2 years. Am a self taught linux geek, having been bored with just 'accepting' the norm for microsoft.

    I bought a laptop, wiped the hard drive and started with 9.04 as my very first distro, and haven't looked back since. Since that time i have gone through 2 laptops, and am on my 3rd keyboard on the current one!

    Love using Ubuntu, and have recruited many people to use it as an alternative, not a replacement for windows. My parents couldn't send an email without help, and now have their computer dual booting, windows for their business, and ubuntu as primarily for personal email and web browsing due to the hours spent with viruses etc from the windows system.

    Would love to join the team and look forward to offering support for new users, and any training i can do for the team.

    Hi James! Welcome to the team! I'm in Harrisburg, and there are quiet a few Philadelphia based team members who I am sure would be interested in having you participate in events!

    Thanks for dropping a line and I look forward to working with you.

    Btw what did you do in the Army? I was a 13p (MLRS Fire Direction Control Specialist) for a three year hitch 1987 - 1990.
