I been away from my hometown of Helena, MT now for about 6 1/2 years. You know what that means, 2 hour drives to Missoula just to hit Best Buy. No not really cause I don't like Best buy all that much. But now that I'm moving back to be with my family, Helena just plain sucks as far as shopping for computer goodies, well except for that place called MD supply or maybe it's called MD5 supply. But I'm so excited to see some of the other changes that ma tells me about. But what the hell happened to the Gaslight theater! You mean the entire city has to crowd into the Great Northern now. I will be moving in late June and I start to look for a place at the end of May so I don't have to room with ma.
Well any way I was just blown away there was enough Montana users to have a Loco team. When I think about the spirit of Ubuntu and Montana at first glance they may not appear to mesh to well. You know the hard drinking, chewing, walk into a bar and everyone looks at ya or the guns on the rack in the pickup. Now I been a hard drinking man myself in the past especially at the Nightowl and that bar off I-90 towards Clancy called Silver something but I got too tell ya that ain't all there is to Montana. Theirs quite a bit of diversity nowadays, and now I got to thinking about it, we've have all ways had quite the diversity. I don't know that I could explain it to someone who's not from Big Sky but if you think about it Linux and Ubuntu go together with Montana like a fish takes to water. You take a dash of independent spirit, some defiance, a little weatherin and some strong medicine (your favorite local brewery's liquor) and ya got yourself Ubuntu.
Guess I'll have to poke in from time to time. Really don't like irc at all so won't show up there. So where's a good place in Montana to buy Computer stuff or to drop off Ubuntu cd's. I was thinkin you could dump a batch at the Project for alternative learning (my school), Capital or Helena High. What about other open source activism in Montana, like lobbying for an open document format or maybe saving government money by switching to Linux.
Anyways just saying howdy. Park Lake here I come.
P.S. You all know the Capital High Bruins and Carroll Saints top the other cities anytime right.
