Howdy, fellas,

First off, I'm sorry I couldn't make it to the meeting last night - the combination of being worn out from my last crazy day in Arizona and the fact that it was Mother's Day hampered my ability to attend.

Second, and more importantly, I find myself in an interesting situation. When I left Tucson, I had to give my friend back the computer he was loaning me that I had Ubuntu on. Not a big deal, because I had my top of the line notebook waiting for me in California. Well, it turns out that since ATI has some of the worst support for OSS I've ever seen, X won't even start on my machine. I'm trying to find a way to correct this issue, but it looks like I may be stuck using Windows until I go pick up a cheapy notebook I throw Ubuntu on. But don't think that means I won't be active. I'm in the process of setting this computer back up right now, so I'll be back on IRC shortly and participating as usual.

ifs a brand new ati card... i can imagine it not working very well. Are you sure that x wont start up at all? not even using the mesa drivers or whatever the default ones are?

No problem guy! Hope you get it all straightened out, we know you'll be talking to us often on the irc channel.

Have a great summer!
