Re: Introductions and Meetups...
I am a new member applicant to the Loco New Hampshire group. I live in Southern New Hampshire, just below Manchester. I moved to New Hampshire in the summer of 2006. I am originally a mid-westerner, but enjoy living in the Northeast very much.
I have been using GNU/Linux since 2000 and began my Ubuntu experience with Breezy. I stay up-to-date with Ubuntu releases. Hardy is what I use currently. I joined the Ubuntu forums in October of 2004. Although I have contributed a limited number of forum threads and posts, I have used the Ubuntu forums to seek help and provide help to others.
I have promoted the use of GNU/Linux and/or Ubuntu to others within my family and friends. My wife uses Ubuntu (Dapper) and kids use Xubuntu (Feisty). My mom and dad have a System76 Darter laptop running Ubuntu Gutsy. A friend of mine (non-techie) purchased a Dell Ubuntu Feisty system after being introduced to Beryl.
In addition to desktop systems, I currently run a Mythbuntu (Gutsy) system. I have built two Mythbuntu systems for friends of mine, which has been a great way to introduce GNU/Linux to non-linux people. I also have an Axentra homeserver running GNU/Linux (unknown distribution) that serves many functions (firewall, email, webserver, file server etc.).
I joined this loco group in the hopes of promoting Ubuntu to people within New Hampshire. Activities include, but not limited to, exchanging of ideas and working a couple times a year in projects that promot Ubuntu.
