(08:25:50 PM) trinikrono: *me
(08:26:14 PM) kester_: A library showcase.that sounds pretty decent
(08:26:18 PM) Minenorin: yep
(08:26:26 PM) allan_: sounds irie
(08:26:48 PM) trinikrono: yes i think it will be a good place to get ubuntu out there
(08:27:19 PM) palladin35y: lol
(08:27:20 PM) Kofi_Atuah: Yesh
(08:27:20 PM) Kofi_Atuah: See, I was thinking

(08:27:20 PM) palladin35y: yeah
(08:28:13 PM) allan_: yes we are on the same page.....get the would be users and keep em interested with ubuntu toys
(08:28:27 PM) Augustine: We going about it wrong. If we want people to adopt Ubuntu, we must state its benefits.
(08:28:27 PM) ***Kofi_Atuah 's theme for the whole thing
(08:28:37 PM) Kofi_Atuah: will be more about unix, development
(08:28:39 PM) Kofi_Atuah: and stuff like that
(08:28:44 PM) Kofi_Atuah: I'm not very good with ubuntu
(08:28:55 PM) Kofi_Atuah: or linux itself, all I'm good with is code
(08:28:55 PM) kester_: development? for the general public's use?
(08:28:55 PM) Kofi_Atuah: if it's left to me
(08:28:56 PM) Kofi_Atuah: alone
(08:29:07 PM) Kofi_Atuah: I will just go my own path with stuff like C
(08:29:08 PM) Kofi_Atuah: etc
(08:29:11 PM) trinikrono: lol Kofi_Atuah
(08:29:23 PM) trinikrono: keep it simple for now
(08:29:24 PM) Kofi_Atuah: <-- doesn't know much about linux to do classes on a distro xD
(08:29:36 PM) allan_: but this is group is ubuntu centric the unix thing is for ttlug
(08:29:47 PM) palladin35y: lol
(08:30:28 PM) ***trinikrono pats Minenorin on back, you look healthy enough
(08:30:42 PM) Minenorin: doesn't matter dearie you'll learn
(08:30:42 PM) Kofi_Atuah: hueheuheu \o/
(08:30:52 PM) palladin35y: rule one you need new users interested show according to allan new toys
(08:31:31 PM) Kofi_Atuah left the room (quit: Quit: Page closed).
(08:31:38 PM) trinikrono: Augustine: what are you thinking like fliers
(08:31:59 PM) allan_: fb
(08:33:02 PM) Augustine: Flyers will help with communication. What I mean is, WHY, me, as a library, business person, individual, household, choose Ubuntu over Windows. Is it cheaper? Better supported? Easier to work with?
(08:34:00 PM) trinikrono: ok you mean supporting documentation
(08:34:08 PM) trinikrono: to give people
(08:34:09 PM) reavengrey [~reavengre@unaffiliated/reavengrey] entered the room.
(08:34:14 PM) trinikrono: :D
(08:34:23 PM) trinikrono: i thought i lost you there reavengrey
(08:34:46 PM) reavengrey: dc'd, on phone now, typing is slower
(08:35:07 PM) reavengrey: ah yea lol >.>
(08:35:16 PM) Minenorin: That's the quandary right there
(08:35:39 PM) Augustine: That can work. I mean, selling benefits. Ubuntu is a VERY scary piece of software. It's not Windows, many of my programs may not run. Why should I use it? Along those lines.
(08:36:05 PM) Minenorin: He's right. That would draw me in.
(08:36:29 PM) trinikrono: ok great can you make a flyer for us Augustine
(08:36:44 PM) trinikrono: you seem to have a good idea already :D
(08:37:26 PM) palladin35y: ok trinikrono ans that
(08:37:26 PM) reavengrey: frankly there are no reasons to use any linux distro if you grew up on windows :O
(08:37:26 PM) allan_: we must really try google+ or the skype conf thing hate typing
(08:37:26 PM) allan_: sacrilage
(08:37:28 PM) reavengrey: One thing we don't want to come off as is faatical and weird
(08:37:32 PM) Augustine: Well, revenge if they are no reasons, why should I care?
(08:37:37 PM) allan_: smite him :)
(08:37:57 PM) reavengrey: >.<
(08:38:04 PM) palladin35y: actually people some distro are way better than windows
(08:38:14 PM) allan_: i believe thatwas tongue in cheek....devils advocate
(08:38:50 PM) trinikrono: use dvorak allan_ :D
(08:39:03 PM) trinikrono: it would keep your fingers nice and new
(08:39:04 PM) palladin35y: also some software aside
(08:39:06 PM) reavengrey: So who will be tsking part in the library classes?
(08:39:15 PM) trinikrono: o/
(08:39:20 PM) Augustine: How is it better? With Windows, all my popular programs can run. I click and it opens..finished. Why should I use Ubuntu?
(08:39:23 PM) kester_: If you're just trying to get people to change over from windows, they'll need motivation to do so. I suppose the target group should be adventurous people
(08:39:27 PM) palladin35y: linux is a lot better
(08:39:33 PM) trinikrono: or young people
(08:39:44 PM) kester_: really and truly only they will want to change, and techie folks of course
(08:39:46 PM) trinichica: Well, that is soemthing you can work on Augustine
(08:39:47 PM) trinikrono: they are always willing to break things
(08:39:50 PM) Augustine: I don't care palladin. How is it better? What will it do for me?
(08:40:45 PM) trinichica: You seem to know the questions people will ask
(08:40:45 PM) allan_: no virii free 34000 pieces of free s/ware, works on crap pcs(i should know)
(08:40:45 PM) Augustine: WELL DONE ALLAN!
(08:40:45 PM) trinichica: Make a brochure
(08:40:46 PM) Augustine: No you have me thinking.
(08:40:52 PM) Augustine: Now*
(08:40:55 PM) ***reavengrey 's target is to spur on genrral programming growth in t'dad
(08:41:00 PM) palladin35y: and it's free
(08:41:02 PM) Augustine: Will it be cheaper than Windows?
(08:41:14 PM) Minenorin: yep
(08:41:18 PM) Minenorin: free :D
(08:41:37 PM) allan_: my target is to get more users the rest will follow
(08:41:38 PM) Augustine: I don't care about free. I care about support and security, I'm from a big firm in POS.
(08:42:01 PM) allan_: then call browwwsers
(08:42:02 PM) trinichica: Document it
(08:42:04 PM) reavengrey: so idk if that helps us set a target group? young/techie, as suggested? I agree with that sentiment, as it was raised ear(ier
(08:42:04 PM) trinichica: Nope
(08:42:06 PM) trinichica: :)
(08:43:06 PM) Augustine: Yes, find a target audience.
(08:44:04 PM) trinikrono: target audience = joe public
(08:44:05 PM) Augustine: And sell benefits. And you'll won't fail.
(08:44:05 PM) kester_: And with a target audience, you can package to fit their needs.
(08:44:05 PM) Augustine: Well said, Kester.
(08:44:05 PM) palladin35y: true
(08:44:05 PM) trinichica: Every and any one use windows but they can use Ubuntu for free every and anyone Just as they learned windows that same wwould be with Ubuntu
(08:44:05 PM) Augustine: Which would mean, quicker delivery time, easier training.
(08:44:13 PM) trinichica: Tech age
(08:44:19 PM) trinichica: Forward ever
(08:44:24 PM) trinichica: Sigh
(08:45:20 PM) reavengrey: and guys, selling FOSS on its price will get us nowhere
(08:45:33 PM) Minenorin: Yeah we know =_=
(08:45:42 PM) reavengrey: most trinis use widpws for free -- piratebay
(08:46:02 PM) Augustine: Good point, again, why should I choose Ubuntu?
(08:46:13 PM) palladin35y: i say allan we can try google+ i sat in on a confrence the other day it was good
(08:46:20 PM) Augustine: When I can get Windows (any version) for $5.00
(08:46:32 PM) Minenorin: And it just works.
(08:47:25 PM) palladin35y: where
(08:47:25 PM) allan_: including the virii on the cd that win was burnt on
(08:47:25 PM) Minenorin: Price of the dvd you plan to burn it to maybe?
(08:47:25 PM) Minenorin: Yep the hangouts are a great idea.
(08:47:25 PM) kester_: lol @ allan_
(08:47:27 PM) trinichica: Because you can't be sued for Ubuntu on a cd
(08:47:28 PM) trinichica: http://www.newsday.co.tt/features/0,81038.html
(08:47:37 PM) trinichica: Pirated
(08:47:58 PM) trinichica: Research is good
(08:48:07 PM) Minenorin: Yea
(08:48:14 PM) Augustine: Please, we, in Trinidad, have lost all respect for the Windows License. Selling Ubuntu on price, may not be wise, it can work, but maybe not.
(08:48:25 PM) trinichica: Always weight out Pros and cons before
(08:48:32 PM) trinichica: Read the articles
(08:48:42 PM) allan_: how about 34sec to boot, no bloat, no sp,mal,virus scanners to suck up processor and ram, better film management and transfer yada yada
(08:48:43 PM) Augustine: Good, that can be part of the marketing.
(08:48:44 PM) trinichica: People get paid to rat on each other
(08:48:49 PM) Minenorin: that'll work
(08:49:01 PM) Augustine: Teach people about the TRUE cost of running Windows LEGALLY.
(08:49:21 PM) palladin35y: ok as a computer tech most of the computers i work on have pirated software
(08:49:21 PM) Augustine: Show them teh illls of piracy, then offer Ubunutu savings.
(08:49:48 PM) Augustine: Yup, people think Office is Free.
(08:50:09 PM) trinikrono: lol well thats more about opensorce in general
(08:50:17 PM) trinikrono: all that is up our alley
(08:50:40 PM) trinikrono: Augustine: we need people to go out in the trenches
(08:50:57 PM) kester_: Also, showing them alternatives to all their software can prove to be useful as well... like gimp over 'pirated' photoshop
(08:50:57 PM) Augustine: Ahhhhh
(08:50:57 PM) Minenorin: At least with GNU/linux based operating systems we won't have to worry about people un-installing the anitvirus because they "didn't use it"
(08:50:57 PM) Augustine: Yes! Yes!
(08:50:57 PM) Minenorin: nooooo
(08:50:57 PM) allan_: i do that daily they could care less when last did msoft or sba charge anyone,and they wont now that they are loosing market share to android tablets, ipads and macs
(08:50:58 PM) palladin35y: yeah they dont know
(08:50:58 PM) Minenorin: not gimp over photoshop
(08:50:58 PM) Augustine: Yes Minenorin! Less viruses.
(08:50:58 PM) Minenorin: anything but XD
(08:50:58 PM) Augustine: THat's a PLUS to me.
(08:50:58 PM) reavengrey: The selling point of FOSS is not price at all brethen :)
(08:50:58 PM) Augustine: Now, you have me interested.
(08:50:59 PM) Minenorin: its a lot less functionality
(08:51:00 PM) kester_: Hahaha Minenorin good point
(08:51:01 PM) metasansana: that argument about Linux and viruses is dated
(08:51:11 PM) metasansana: hello folks :)
(08:51:14 PM) reavengrey: it is versatility and fun
(08:51:15 PM) trinichica: Hi
(08:51:33 PM) palladin35y: i sorry i like photoshop
(08:51:40 PM) Minenorin: its harder to get around, and its unfriendly to smaller screens
(08:51:47 PM) Augustine: Yup, you all can use piracy to your advantage.
(08:51:48 PM) Minenorin: i prefer corel draw
(08:51:55 PM) Minenorin: but gimp is just not ready
(08:51:56 PM) allan_: i like corel....and gimp is hard
(08:52:10 PM) Augustine: You know what REALLy inpressed me when I use to use ubuntu?
(08:52:13 PM) palladin35y: hey metasansana
(08:52:24 PM) allan_: so use virtualbox or dual boot
(08:52:24 PM) Augustine: That place where you can go and download software.
(08:52:30 PM) Minenorin: we need programs that are able to replace the ones that we use not frustrate us
(08:52:33 PM) kester_: Corel huh, gonna check that out now
(08:52:35 PM) Minenorin: the software center?
(08:52:36 PM) Augustine: Just type in a name and a whole list of software shows up.
(08:52:51 PM) trinikrono: yes
(08:53:01 PM) trinikrono: they are still improving it also
(08:53:01 PM) palladin35y: yes
(08:53:02 PM) Augustine: I didn't have to buy anything.
(08:53:09 PM) Augustine: Just install.
(08:53:12 PM) allan_: alt to p/shop and corel...gimp and inkscape
(08:53:16 PM) Minenorin: I haven't seen it in a while.
(08:53:23 PM) trinikrono: the software center from deepin linux
(08:54:08 PM) Augustine: I was like, WOW!
(08:54:08 PM) Minenorin: also scribus
(08:54:08 PM) Augustine: Ah yes, we are getting the jist of it.
(08:54:08 PM) allan_: forgot that one and i thin it imports .cdr files
(08:54:08 PM) Augustine: You see, Photoshop etc has become to easy to obtain.
(08:54:08 PM) Augustine: That price is no longer a problem.
(08:54:13 PM) reavengrey: so, what items are we loking at for the syllabud at the library?
(08:54:17 PM) Augustine: Yes, the software center is awesome!
(08:54:19 PM) palladin35y: gimp has it pluses and minuses lol
(08:54:41 PM) Augustine: Gimp cannot hold a candle to Photoshop.
(08:54:50 PM) Minenorin: komodo edit for the programmers and designers
(08:54:51 PM) Augustine: However, it's a good piece of software.
(08:55:05 PM) Minenorin: Its good for home use i think
(08:55:15 PM) reavengrey: There's np opoint in us meeting if we don't begin workung on a syllabus
(08:55:24 PM) Minenorin: gimp.
(08:55:24 PM) Minenorin: yeah

(08:55:45 PM) allan_: is like pullin bull why get an H licence when yuh ent gettin charge, we need jack to monitor illegal software use
(08:55:53 PM) Minenorin: its not hard to use just limited
(08:55:53 PM) palladin35y: and a team for the work
(08:56:03 PM) Augustine: YES Allan.
(08:56:03 PM) reavengrey: so far, only i and kurt gave volunteered to tech at the classes
(08:56:03 PM) Minenorin: hahaha
(08:56:06 PM) Minenorin: exactly
(08:56:23 PM) Minenorin: I was not aware we were teaching anyone?
(08:56:23 PM) Augustine: We need to inform people on the dangers of piracy, THEN drop the ubuntu bomb
(08:56:26 PM) trinichica: Kurt, reavengrey and I
(08:56:34 PM) kester_: hahahaha Jack yes!
(08:57:13 PM) trinikrono: Minenorin: the thing in the libary Minenorin

(08:59:29 PM) Minenorin: Oho?
(08:59:38 PM) trinichica: reavengrey: agreed
(08:59:44 PM) trinichica: :)
(08:59:44 PM) Minenorin: That's great :D
(08:59:44 PM) palladin35y: O.o
(08:59:51 PM) reavengrey: So group input is desired -- we've ben running in circles so far :)
(09:00:01 PM) trinikrono: so who would like to help us out
(09:00:52 PM) trinichica: :)
(09:00:52 PM) reavengrey: Syllabus, let's go :)
(09:00:52 PM) Minenorin: hmm
(09:00:53 PM) allan_: Look the holidays are upon us and i can donate 8 pcs from 8am to 10 maybe daily for ubuntu demos
(09:00:53 PM) allan_: 2 sessios free
(09:00:53 PM) Minenorin: try using the intro to ubuntu pages on the wiki as a syllabus
(09:00:53 PM) Augustine: Ha Ha, Allan.
(09:00:56 PM) allan_: thats 1 hour per session
(09:01:14 PM) trinichica: I can get an alternative venue
(09:01:17 PM) trinichica: :)]
(09:01:25 PM) trinichica: Fre all the time
(09:01:27 PM) reavengrey: I am not qualified to talk about linux or ubuntu, so if the whole ubuntu thing ss to come in, it will have to be from another group member
(09:01:38 PM) Minenorin: That should be more than sufficient, besides it will be way better than just showing them a link and saying go read
(09:01:45 PM) allan_: with linux on them?
(09:02:26 PM) reavengrey: allan, are you volunteering an _alternate_ site?
(09:02:26 PM) palladin35y: then reavengrey learn and learn
(09:02:47 PM) reavengrey: or are we still going with the library?
(09:03:10 PM) trinichica: Library +1
(09:03:53 PM) trinikrono: lol its not time to vote as yet
(09:04:10 PM) Augustine: "Peace of Mind" is a good benefit. I don't have to worry about being caught with pirated software, and screwing my business over.
(09:04:10 PM) ***reavengrey has no preference, but i am only able to come out on wednesdays :=
(09:04:10 PM) kester_: Will the library offer 10+ pc's though?
(09:04:10 PM) allan_: browwwsers - we have 20 ubuntu machines all on ll day you may use 8 of them fro free for 2 hours per dayf rom 8 -10 mon to sat...any other time will be dependant on usage but for the vacation it slows
(09:04:17 PM) trinichica: Very true Augustine
(09:04:35 PM) reavengrey: K, so if allan is volunteering, browwwsers it is
(09:04:45 PM) trinichica: All sucessful or large businesses would hirt from this
(09:04:48 PM) kester_: Ok so on that note it's browwsers I suppose.
(09:04:53 PM) reavengrey: locus decided, now for syllabus
(09:05:04 PM) trinikrono: UBUNTU!
(09:05:06 PM) trinichica: So it is safe for small home offices

(09:07:40 PM) palladin35y: me too
(09:07:40 PM) kester_: Especially after the holidays
(09:07:40 PM) Minenorin: for our syllabus we should cover
(09:07:40 PM) allan_: matasnsana: wehave had to journey to tong gor ttlf and comp soc meets for decades, come pass de lighthouse nuh
(09:07:40 PM) ***reavengrey can volunteer to teach anything to do with development; I'm not a linux expert though, so I can't contrinute anything to the ubuntu stuff, byt i am versatile and useful in many ways :)
(09:07:40 PM) metasansana: we should start a unemployed ubuntuers group
(09:07:42 PM) allan_: Client Priv. cant say
(09:07:44 PM) palladin35y: lol
(09:07:45 PM) Augustine: Lol
(09:07:46 PM) reavengrey: who else can volunteer to tech, and in what capacity?
(09:07:48 PM) Minenorin: 1. Introduction to FOSS 2. How to install a Linux based operating system; 3. How to navigate the Linux desktop, using applications and installing software; 4. How to get help and support; 5. How to compute and communicate in a language of your choice.
(09:07:49 PM) metasansana: where is the lighthouse?
(09:07:57 PM) allan_: kester u have work!
(09:08:18 PM) kester_: Hahaha after the vacation Allan!! lol

(09:08:31 PM) Augustine: Lol, Kester get rope in
(09:08:41 PM) trinikrono: yes Minenorin!
(09:08:51 PM) reavengrey: I like what i'm seeing from mineno
(09:08:55 PM) Minenorin: and a hands on installation of a GNU/linux os
(09:09:12 PM) Minenorin: in this case ubuntu :P
(09:09:12 PM) kester_: Minenorin seems to have it all together there
(09:09:16 PM) Augustine: So, you all are running tutorials then?
(09:09:19 PM) trinikrono: super maybe allan_ will let us do the installs
(09:09:36 PM) Minenorin: More specialized stuff could be
(09:09:37 PM) trinikrono: we can use usbs
(09:09:51 PM) allan_: @Minenorin: if that is the syllabus it is not directed at newbies and would be converts
(09:09:55 PM) Augustine: WHy do tutorials in the first meeting?
(09:10:24 PM) trinikrono: we must baptise them in ubuntu Augustine
(09:10:44 PM) trinikrono: that way they will get practical experience too
(09:10:58 PM) trinikrono: so they come out with something
(09:10:59 PM) Minenorin: Compatibility of FOSS software with proprietary ones
(09:10:59 PM) reavengrey: I would like to add a bit of an intro to 'basic linux apps', such as the terminal, and since it's ubuntu cettered, thing like understanding apt, packagesm and foss software
(09:10:59 PM) Minenorin: its just an example allan surely we can simplify it from there
(09:10:59 PM) kester_: that reavengrey sounds good also
(09:10:59 PM) Minenorin: see :P
(09:10:59 PM) Augustine: We are thinking like techs, not like normal people.
(09:11:04 PM) allan_: whoa this is not what i signed up for :)....where is ubuntu in all this the fun part the stuff to keep people awake who are windows fans
(09:11:14 PM) palladin35y: show installation on an old machine many people throw away their old machines for a new one
(09:11:19 PM) kester_: Allan has a point
(09:11:35 PM) Augustine: Indeed. WHo care about installing Ubuntu?
(09:11:46 PM) Augustine: Who cares about FOSS? What's a FOSS anyway?
(09:11:53 PM) trinikrono: all they have to do is show up you know
(09:12:11 PM) Minenorin: Migration to FOSS with minimal hassles >.>
(09:12:30 PM) Minenorin: well its not like you can't NOT explain these things
(09:12:30 PM) palladin35y: true allan
(09:12:41 PM) Augustine: As a person, I don't care. You know what I care about? Typing this document for my Boss...
(09:12:48 PM) Augustine: Keeping software cost down in my company.
(09:12:57 PM) trinikrono: lol you dont have a boss Augustine!
(09:13:07 PM) Augustine: Damn Windows prices...
(09:13:12 PM) Augustine: Damn viruses.
(09:13:15 PM) palladin35y: ent lol
(09:13:17 PM) Minenorin: haha
(09:13:50 PM) trinikrono: the way you guys talking we would need a launch in the hilton
(09:14:15 PM) Augustine: That's all I care about
(09:14:15 PM) Augustine: Damn you every time a New Windows comes up I'm FORCED to upgrade
(09:14:15 PM) reavengrey: by switching to a linux userspace, a user is inadvertently binding themselves to foss since /most/ software they use will be foss alternativestto apps they would havr used on windows -- understanding foss is unavoidable
(09:14:15 PM) palladin35y: yep
(09:14:15 PM) Augustine: So, wait you're telling me I have to BUY Office?
(09:14:15 PM) Augustine: WHy doesn't it ship with PC?!?!
(09:14:15 PM) Minenorin: Well I'm pretty sure that's all anyone cares about, myself included
(09:14:15 PM) allan_: Peeps it is soap box time, you have lofty ideals of mass programmers emerging from this suumer of code, but the reality is tat there are endless users just fed up of tthe grind of windows. they want to use word, excel, powerpoint and and image prog,surf the net and check e-mail and FB thats all. ubuntu can do that and Skype
(09:14:16 PM) Minenorin: it used to darnit!
(09:14:35 PM) Minenorin: hell no i can't make that
(09:14:35 PM) Augustine: True Allan.
(09:14:39 PM) Augustine: lol
(09:14:41 PM) Augustine: No we don't Kurt
(09:14:42 PM) kester_: True!
(09:14:50 PM) Augustine: We just need to think like PEOPLE not TECHS
(09:15:05 PM) Minenorin: Ok. well to tell you the truth as a person
(09:15:20 PM) kester_: Not to mention ubuntu gives you a bit of extra security in the sense that most viruses won't affect your system
(09:15:31 PM) Minenorin: I would not choose ubuntu as an entry to foss
(09:15:42 PM) Augustine: Good! Honesty.
(09:15:50 PM) Minenorin: i started with suse and everything just worked
(09:15:50 PM) Minenorin: that was what i need
(09:15:52 PM) Minenorin: needed*
(09:15:57 PM) allan_: need to keep it simple get them interested and move on with those who want to develop
(09:16:13 PM) Augustine: Yup, simplicity. Benefits.
(09:16:17 PM) palladin35y: correct allan
(09:16:31 PM) Augustine: Introduce Ubuntu.
(09:16:33 PM) kester_: Simplicity is bliss
(09:16:33 PM) Minenorin: not endless hours combing forums trying to figure out why my wireless card wasn't recognised.
(09:16:53 PM) trinikrono: haha Minenorin they made you smarter!
(09:17:39 PM) allan_: Augustine could it be we agree...ah this is a beautiful moment...time to turn on my BOSE
(09:17:39 PM) Augustine: LOL!
(09:17:39 PM) kester_: hahaha
(09:17:39 PM) Augustine: Good one, Allan.
(09:17:39 PM) palladin35y: lol
(09:17:39 PM) Augustine: You cursed me, and you made me smile, WELL done!
(09:18:18 PM) allan_: Dont really have BOSE have Sony it was either that or klipsh**
(09:18:38 PM) kester_: hahahaha why not a logitech Allan?
(09:18:43 PM) allan_: yes i know but the C would hace ruined the joke
(09:19:11 PM) allan_: now now Klipsch are not all bad
(09:19:11 PM) Augustine: Look, you all have a REAL good thing going here. Don't compete with Windows. There are things that ubuntu does better than Windows. I'm going to use Linux, exclusively, for developing in Drupal.
(09:19:49 PM) Augustine: So, i'll be a full time Linux user...Development seems easier in Ubuntu. For some strange reason.
(09:20:15 PM) trinikrono: because it is
(09:20:38 PM) trinikrono: use dvorak too Augustine
(09:21:02 PM) Minenorin: blahhh kobaka :P
(09:21:02 PM) allan_: I use it for Joomla easier that win
(09:21:18 PM) Minenorin: yeah i agree development is easier
(09:21:28 PM) reavengrey: So we have loose syllabud
(09:21:30 PM) Minenorin: its easy on the hands!
(09:21:39 PM) allan_: we do
(09:21:41 PM) reavengrey: 'something about ubuntu'
(09:21:50 PM) Augustine: Indeed. So, for me Ubuntu offers a clear benefit.
(09:21:52 PM) reavengrey: seems legit
(09:22:11 PM) Augustine: Once we offer benefits, we'll win.
(09:22:22 PM) Minenorin: I like the freedom it give me with customizing the interface
(09:22:24 PM) reavengrey: When are classes? iirc allan has offered time during weekdays (?)
(09:22:33 PM) Minenorin: gives*
(09:22:33 PM) allan_: we need to do a proper intro and benefits and a free install?
(09:22:41 PM) Augustine: That can work, Allan.
(09:23:00 PM) trinikrono: Augustine: will you come down
(09:23:01 PM) Augustine: We need to show them, that the basic tasks are available in the stock install.
(09:23:05 PM) Augustine: Sure.
(09:23:12 PM) Augustine: Word Processor etc
(09:23:18 PM) allan_: of course participants will have to fill out an ap form online for our database
(09:23:45 PM) trinikrono: whos database?
(09:23:51 PM) trinikrono: ubuntu-tt?
(09:24:21 PM) kester_: Messaging clients also
(09:24:21 PM) Augustine: Correct...
(09:24:21 PM) Minenorin: yeah
(09:24:21 PM) reavengrey: So which days are the classes availablr or agreed on? :O
(09:24:21 PM) allan_: now about getting the word out FB still more econ than fliers unless we can tap the schools before next friday
(09:24:32 PM) ***reavengrey cab geberally only come out on wednesdays
(09:24:57 PM) allan_: not mine one for ubuntu-tt
(09:26:06 PM) Minenorin1 [~Richardso@cuscon81550.tstt.net.tt] entered the room.
(09:26:23 PM) allan_: ?
(09:26:26 PM) trinikrono: Minenorin1 still using tstt i see
(09:26:38 PM) Minenorin1: oh blah kobaka >.>
(09:26:39 PM) Augustine: Lol. I'm available on evenings.
(09:26:42 PM) Minenorin1: don't remind me
(09:27:17 PM) trinikrono: great palladin35y will take pictures
(09:27:24 PM) trinikrono: i think we are set
(09:27:38 PM) Augustine: Let me know about plans a day in advance.
(09:27:38 PM) kester_: So someone's gonna make a flier that we can all share on FB to advertise?
(09:27:38 PM) Minenorin1 left the room.
(09:27:38 PM) allan_: any one available for mornings
(09:27:52 PM) allan_: the 1 st per month from 1 - 3 @ 20 pcs still stands
(09:27:53 PM) trinichica: If we haven't decided on a venue I can check the Library We can meet and i could check other venue or pull some stings for the good cause
(09:27:55 PM) Augustine: First, seasoned Ubuntu users should come up with some benefits.
(09:27:56 PM) trinikrono: when would the first one be guys
(09:28:08 PM) Augustine: THen make the flyer.
(09:28:30 PM) trinikrono: vote on the 4th
(09:28:59 PM) trinikrono: voting is done ubuntu style with +1, -1 or 0
(09:29:13 PM) kester_: Browwwsers is the settled location for the person who asked
(09:29:33 PM) allan_: what are we voting on again?

(09:29:59 PM) Minenorin1: gah >.<
(09:30:00 PM) Minenorin left the room (quit: Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
(09:30:03 PM) trinikrono: we want to have a date first

(09:31:39 PM) trinikrono: we are voting on the 4th as the first Minenorin1
(09:31:47 PM) Augustine: This just ran though my head. One of the biggest challenges, is getting people to understand, that Ubuntu is NOT WINDOWS. You can't just stick stick Cd's in willy nilly and expect it to run.
(09:31:51 PM) Augustine: Keep that in mind.
(09:31:56 PM) trinikrono: vote using +-0
(09:32:05 PM) Augustine: What's that?
(09:32:44 PM) reavengrey left the room (quit: Ping timeout: 265 seconds).

(09:38:35 PM) allan_: 3 out of 10 and where is Kofi
(09:38:39 PM) Augustine: I give that date 5 Windows.

(09:39:05 PM) trinikrono: thats 4 so far
(09:39:10 PM) reavengrey: dc again juehuehue
(09:39:20 PM) trinikrono: reavengrey: we need vote from you

(09:45:38 PM) kester_: but we still have 5 votes out of the 10 people present, so that leaves 4 more people...not so?
(09:45:50 PM) Minenorin1: You know...I'm abstaining so you have a majority ne?
(09:45:58 PM) Augustine: Lets set up video conferencing for Metsanasana

(10:13:59 PM) trinikrono: Augustine: do you accept?
(10:14:41 PM) reavengr1y: +1
(10:14:41 PM) Augustine: What is the talk about?
(10:14:41 PM) allan_: why not split the thing up and let each person prepare a proper talk on a given topic
(10:14:42 PM) palladin35y: kurt if reavengr1y can't make it then you do it
(10:14:42 PM) allan_: is this not the newbie intro
(10:14:42 PM) Augustine: I won't be able to give that talk. Talks need time to prepare.
(10:14:47 PM) reavengr1y: allan_ makes a very pertinent point
(10:14:49 PM) trinikrono: it can be a very basic talk touching on free software and ubuntu in general
(10:15:20 PM) allan_: someone on he gui, one on apps, one on software cntr , on on the install, and one to close
(10:15:47 PM) Augustine: Nope, then, one of you all should do it. I don't use Ubuntu, never forget that. If the topic is more general, for instance, productivity, or what is an OS soemthing like that, then no probs.
(10:16:20 PM) trinikrono: Augustine: you choose what you want to speak about
(10:16:28 PM) allan_: we cn do that as the intro to the intro
(10:16:34 PM) trinikrono: i just want volunteers
(10:16:47 PM) Augustine: When someone asks, what version of ubuntu you use at home? What you want me to say? Ubuntu Vista?
(10:17:34 PM) trinikrono: Minenorin1: will you like to give a talk
(10:17:53 PM) allan_: wash that mouth
(10:17:53 PM) Augustine: Start from the basics. A build. What is an OS, what is Windows, some problems with Windows (cost, viruses etc) THEN introduce ubuntu
(10:17:53 PM) Augustine: Advantages of ubuntu....
(10:17:53 PM) Augustine: A Demo.
(10:17:53 PM) Augustine: That's it
(10:17:53 PM) allan_: agreed
(10:17:55 PM) palladin35y: short and sweet
(10:18:05 PM) Augustine: Yup.
(10:18:20 PM) allan_: trinikrono what u talkin bout as our esteemed leader?
(10:18:34 PM) Augustine: One person can give the talk, BUT to make it easy on them, we can all research a specific topic, then join forces
(10:18:44 PM) Minenorin1: hm?
(10:18:47 PM) Augustine: I can handle the OS part.
(10:18:54 PM) trinikrono: allan ubuntu does not work like that
(10:19:10 PM) trinikrono: i dont want this team to be about me alone
(10:19:10 PM) reavengr1y: good guy august!
(10:19:12 PM) Minenorin1: I can't come out this time :(
(10:19:18 PM) Augustine: Someone do the advantages of Ubuntu, someone do Windows, someone do the dempo
(10:19:25 PM) trinikrono: :D
(10:19:31 PM) Minenorin1: I'd love to do one next time though
(10:19:45 PM) trinikrono: Minenorin1: maybe the next week
(10:19:54 PM) trinikrono: depending on how it goes
(10:19:57 PM) Augustine: We meet for 5 organize notes, then let Kurt give the talk.
(10:20:12 PM) trinikrono: oh really
(10:20:18 PM) trinikrono: and if i cant make it
(10:20:31 PM) trinikrono: i wanted you guys to do it
(10:20:38 PM) trinikrono: i will supervise
(10:21:19 PM) allan_: I do a career guidance stint in pres once a yar and find that when one person drones on for an hour it gets dull we can do the install in parallel with the session and have quick things going on in tandem with helpers showing hands on whats available
(10:21:19 PM) kester_: sounds good Augustine.
(10:21:19 PM) Augustine: You can.
(10:21:19 PM) Augustine: Yes, 45 mins sounds good
(10:21:19 PM) Augustine: Allan, can you get a projector?
(10:21:19 PM) Augustine: SIMPLE slides.
(10:21:44 PM) palladin35y: stupesssssss
(10:21:46 PM) Augustine: No, Kurt. You're the leader
(10:22:08 PM) allan_: i have one and a screen can vouch for the time left on bulb
(10:22:09 PM) palladin35y: kurt dont get me started

(10:24:46 PM) reavengr1y left the room (quit: Ping timeout: 265 seconds).
(10:24:47 PM) Augustine: Someone can research Windows, so that we can GROUND the audience's experience in something familiar.
(10:24:47 PM) allan_: talks have to no more than 10 mins
(10:24:47 PM) reavengrey: nice, be sure to include things like difference between os and kernel, and what distros are, etc
