    Summer is nice here in Augusta. So is 12.04 LTS after installing gnome 3.5. I think it looks a lot cleaner than unity.
    Hope everyone stays safe this summer.

    Nice to see a few people here in Maine using Ubuntu! I haven't posted alot, so I haven't been able to edit my details...

    I'm actually up to 12.04 LTS 64bit stand-alone Dell laptop. (XPS 15z)

    Wishin' I lived on the coast! I'm up here in "The County" in good ole Presque Isle. We know cold real well. I'm looking forward to a few days in Old Orchard Beach in a couple of weeks!

    Re: Maine Ubuntu Users

    can anyone get lucid's bootloader installed on a manually created dev/sda2?
    the installer wont let me change where it puts it.

    I assume that the bootloader is grub (link), so you could always just install it directly. While I have not done Linux-from-scratch for several years, I'm sure it can only be even easier than it used to be. Warning: I haven't read this thread (link) yet, but it might give you a good idea where to start. May also want to take a look at this link too. Make sure you have an external (and disconnected) backup of all your data before doing anything as is the general advice for any critical OS-related modification. More info here, and here.

    Re: Maine Ubuntu Users

    that would have been nice, but Ive tried a number of threads with no help.
    I did figure it out by the way. Lucid WONT install a bootloader to anything but specifically SDA. So to get around this I had to go without initially installing a bootloader. Then i downloaded GRUB2, then installed to sda2. Boom, windows bootloader chainloads GRUB2, which loads lucid, or windows. It seems smarter to let the windows bootloader go first because every time windows updates it overwrites the MBR, effectively destroying GRUB.

    Re: Maine Ubuntu Users

    I'm in concurrence with Valley1967 in regards of if there is a to-do list. I'm not a pro at Linux by any stretch, but am capable in other areas. As a TSG tech for UPS, I did get to dabble in the UNIX servers we were utilizing in the '90's. Of course they quickly (and unfortunately) went by the wayside in favor of Mahwah's hacked and cracked versions of Windows NT. Anyway I do still have a few skills, and since I'm not 'working' any longer, I'd be happy to help if I can. That said, I do live in Presque Isle and can't travel. Other than that, if there is something I can do to further the Linux cause, I'm more than happy to help...
