What: NTR Imaging party!!!
Project: NTR Dual Boot Re-Image Project
When: Dec. 6, 2008, 10am - 2pm
Where: Nonprofit Technology Resources (http://ntronline.org/) (NTR)
1524 Brandywine Street
Philadelphia PA 19130

After over 3 months of work, this is project has finally matured enough to move to the next level:
>>> Installing hard drives with Xubuntu on them to about 20 of NTR's desktop PCs <<<

The Xubuntu drives have been created and tested ... well, almost tested. They have only been installed and booted on a few desktop PCs. We need to confirm that our Xubuntu image is generic enough to work on most of NTR's desktop PCs. The best way to do this is to install the xubu drives into a wide variety of PCs and run them.

We have the drives.
We have the PCs.
We need YOU!

PS: it's rumored there will be cake of the oreo cookie variety present at this gathering

Hi lostwars,

I moved from Roxborough to Norwood a year ago. Missed the bike race this year :(

Haha, you might be interested? Don't worry, no pressure. If you can't make it to this one, NTR holds what they call the "Bring a Computer Ask a Question Workshop" every 3rd Saturday. Once we get Linux on most of NTR's PCs, the plan is to have a strong presence at the Workshops, either in person or via IRC.

And there's always the option for people to volunteer for this project during the week too. The hard drives will always need to be imaged with Linux and installed into PCs. One of the NTR guys told me they distribute (sell/donate) about 100 desktops PC per week.

Hope you can make it!

I have been meaning to help out with the ntr project but usually have conflicts with other meetings most of the time.

Funny, but in the most busy month of the year, I may not have any conflicts with Dec 6. Lightly pencil me in for being there.

Prayer (fully)
