    My personal opinion on this is that we should first take Worzie's suggestion and try to establish a MissoulaLUG. Then, if they desire, users of different distro's could form their own little sub groups to talk about distro specific stuff. But the LUG would serve as an excellent foundation for the distro groups to start from.

    Cool. Relatively speaking, so am I. But obviously waiting on the really experienced Linux users in Missoula to start the LUG hasn't worked out so far, so.... we'll just do it ourselves and maybe even let them join.


    Hey Worzie, if you're still reading this thread, got any recommendations? I've briefly skimmed through the LUG HowTo at Linux.org, but I'm not sure all of that really applies to us yet.

    Thank you for starting a LUG!! Count me in. I will be there whenever subject to prior commitments. There should be coffee though and a place to plug in.

    As an aside, I am struggling to complete the last step of migrating my law office and the Montana Justice Project (affiliated with openmissoula) to FOSS. Last step? Replacing Quickbooks with GnuCash. Its kicking my *** because I've been doing my bookkeeping and payroll by hand until I can figure out enough basics to complete the switch.

    But . . . when its done, every bit of code in my office will have been replaced by FOSS. I began this process in 2000, and I was a complete novice. Thanks to help from people like my brother Ryan and Cole and others, its almost done.

    Yes, please lets set a LUG meeting. Where and when? Let me know how I can help.

    lunaz do we have a date and location yet? Let me know if you want help. It sound like you need a spot near the bus line. I think the northside would be a cool place --- maybe at northside community development corporation on Stoddard if Bob would let us? There's also the public library and anywhere that has coffee.

    Oops - sorry. I see that the first meeting of the Missoula LUG is at Break Espresso at 6:30 on Sept. 5th, 2007. See you there.

    Some people may also be interested in skimming the LUG HowTo before the meeting...
