    Welcome to the Alabama LoCo forums

    Welcome to the forums for the Alabama LoCo Team.
    If you are a resident on Alabama please consider joining our cause. I am aware that there are local user groups through out Alabama and this in no way is meant to take away from that. I am hoping it will be beneficial to everyone. I would like to work in conjunction with the exsisting groups.
    The goal of the group is to provide support for local users and advocate Ubuntu and Linux whenever possible by means of Install fests, meeting, and organized programs.
    I am no professional at this but I think as a group we could really benefit others along the way.
    Please feel free to join us. Currently I have the forums and IRC channels available and will post a lint to the mailing list when it comes available as well.

    Re: Welcome to the Alabama LoCo forums

    Thanks, I have a feeling there are more Ubuntu users floating around Alabama. I think we should get something started.
    I am from the Birmingham area and have pretty much lived here all my life. I'm hoping to gather people from all over the state.
    Please spread the word if you know anyone else.

    Re: Welcome to the Alabama LoCo forums

    Welcome, Thanks for checking this out. It's nice to see more people in Alabama are Ubuntu users. I was beginning to feel alone. There are a couple here in the local LUG.
    Auburn! wow I spent some time down there long ago with a friend who attended. Let's see, the places I went are probably closed. Niffers and SuperClub are 2 that I remember well.

    Mentone, I have been there are well. I remember riding through there to go to Georgia to get beer when we would camp at Little River Canyon.
    hmmmmm.... is it me or all my memories including drinking?!
    LOL, everyone is going to think I'm a drunk!

    Good luck with the install. Let us know if you need help. Are you going with Feisty (Beta) or Edgy?

    I'm from Huntsville btw.... I dont know if you had any drinks there.... lol

    I have installed edgy on my laptop and feisty on my desktop (updated kernel support)

    I have managed to get everything that I had working on my vista installation working in Ubuntu (video, audio, network, tv card, mythtv (w/remote), vnc) plus beryl too, which is very nice

    If I can find a program to stream live tv to my phone I would be all set for now. I am enjoying learning the ins and outs of linux and ubuntu as well

    Awesome! Just got Dapper installed yesterday and am adjusting to it and various settings. Still have a lot of questions but am researching and pouring over a book I bought (The Official Ubuntu Book).

    Glad we have a group here in Bama. I'm just North of B'ham in Gardendale so we all seem to be fairly close. If any of you use Gaim...I'm usually on there in the mornings on either ICQ or MSN Messenger. Check my profile for the contact info.

    Soon as I get comfortable with Ubuntu, I'll be using it mostly instead of Windoze.

    Re: Welcome to the Alabama LoCo forums

    hello all,
    I am from the Trussville area, just graduated from UAB. I've been dual-booting XP and Kubuntu for about a year now. I currently have at leasts 2 or 3 machines running kubuntu with Beryl all the time while I am still tied to XP on a few machines for its printer support, financial software for work, and games.

    I have only met 2 or 3 people (other than the friend that got me involved to begin with) that have even heard of Ubuntu in Alabama... so it is good to see our state represented on the forum.

    I don't have much knowledge of linux to offer, but I have gotten quite acustomed to installing Beryl with both Nvidia and ATI cards on Ubuntu, and I hope to contribute to the open-source cause!

    btw, my girl went to Auburn for 4.5 years.... so you know that I've bought a few cases of beer there as well... haha
