I'm up in Asheville. There are several Ubuntu users that I've met here in town. Ubuntu and Linux users are growing exponentially. Give a shout if you're ever up here; it's always cool to have a face-2-face with another Linux user.

Welcome fellow Western North Carolina Linux users. I knew that there were some around Asheville as there used to be an Asheville Linux Users Group (LUG), which appeared dormant but based upon a recent post, it may be coming back to life:

I also use MINT GLORIA AMD64 as my primary desktop. I also have a box with Ubuntu 9.10 on it but is currently turned off and in the corner. I do like Ubu 9.10 but the Mint folks have made several improvements that I really like.

This past fall I attended the Atlanta Linux Festival. It was wonderful, conducted like a typical industry conference with multiple concurrent sessions, creating the "which one to attend" quandary. The Ubuntu team held a fantastic "how to write a Linux driver" extended session. You paired up into two-person teams each sharing a USB thermometer. Then using a supplied template as a guide, and aided by an instructor and overhead slide, we each built a driver for the thermometer that worked!

I missed the Linux Conference at Clemson but hope to be able to attend next year - and OF COURSE the Atlanta Linuxfest 2010.

It is coming back to life! At least we're doing our best... There has been lots of activity in the IRC channel, #ubuntu-us-nc and the wiki (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NorthCarolinaTeam) is now being updated much more regularly. We're doing our best to get all this together so we can become an "approved loco". The easiest ways to get involved is through the mailing list (https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-us-nc) or the IRC channel.

Alot of people in the NC Loco here helped in organizing and planning ALF as well, and the one coming up. I think it's in Greenville/Spartanburg in June - but don't quote me on that...

If you need help on getting IRC setup - just ask!

I used to get to Murphy occasionally when I lived in Georgia (years ago). I remember eating a fine, old-fashioned breakfast at a diner on Main Street.
