    What computers are you using at Front Street? I teach a number of technology workshops for teachers in the district. I now teach exclusively at the Capital HS library but I used to use Front Street. Is it still all Macs or do they have some PCs now?

    Wow, it is fantastic to see all this local interest. It would be great to expand and offer some instruction at the high school level.

    They (The Adult Learning Center) have a suite of PC's now. They are actually fairly decent boxes and by mutual agreement we disconnect the HD before booting our live Linux CD's (mutual security).

    They have one box set up with a projector so I can literally walk students through more complex steps.

    All in all I was quite pleased with the facility and would like to see the program grow.

    Re: Coming home to Helena.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I just tonight discovered this section of the Ubuntu forums.

    Are people still in Helena still needing help? I'm a new Ubuntu user. I have a passing familiarity with linux, nothing on an expert level but manage to finagle my way around the OS.

    I have to say that I've been pleasantly surprised with how far Linux has come. I'm currently dual booting right now.

    Re: Coming home to Helena.

    Welcome

    Well, I am in Helena and am planning to run an adult education Linux (Ubuntu) course at the adult education center in Helena this fall.

    If I can be of any assistance, drop me a line

    Lightbulb Re: Coming home to Helena.

    bodhi.zazen, I want to suggest to you to either start up a new HelenaLUG or talk with Ken to see if your Helena Linux users here who have piped up in this thread could rouse him into having more regular meetings. (Bad grammar I know.)

    Ken means well, but needs to be more vocal in the community online to advertise the existence of the HelenaLUG. BTW, for those who don't know, it is at http://www.helenalug.org

    Anyway I hope you all would consider this. Go Bodhi go!

    I saw the Helena LUG but there haven't been any meetings since I've around. Granted, I've only been at this for a couple of months.

    OK, a quick update :

    First I missed the dead line for my linux course this fall

    Plan to run the course in the winter semester ...

    Second, I would love to kick start the Helena LUG ... Anyone else interested ?
