    Philly InstallFest SUCCESS!

    Below is an email was from kejava (Kevin).... From this email and what I've seen on the IRC, it looks like this was a great success! Congratulations to everyone who participated in this event.

    I look forward to seeing and particpating in more of these events as we move forward.

    Once again, great job Kevin, Jim, Alex, Ben, Randy, Joe, and everyone else that made this Installfest a success!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm quite exhausted so I will have to keep this short. The install-fest
    at NTR went very well today. I think our small team did an excellent
    job of pulling our limited resources together. The core install team
    that I speak of: Jim, Alex, Ben, Randy, Joe, and myself. Did I forget
    any other installers? I apologize in the advance.

    Also a big thanks to Alex's girlfriend, Gabby, and Joe's girlfriend for
    helping out. Jim brought a nice spread of special "Ubuntu Bread",
    bagels, and coffee. Randy brought bags of chocolate. Someone donated
    money so Ben bought 8 liters worth of soda. Pizza appeared from thin
    air. I still don't know who got that.

    Wes, Terri, and Michael of the Mt. Airy CVG showed up with the Girls Inc
    PC. I saw a several people from PACS: Chris Freeman, Rich Sias, and two
    others.

    When we went into this, we intended to keep track of everyone
    attending. We were out numbered and eventually gave up on counting (at
    least I did). We believe that about 25 - 30 people showed up in the 9am
    - 6pm time span that we were there. Some people brought more than one
    PC. Sometimes we took turns working on the same PC. An exact head
    count will be tricky to come by.

    What I do know is that a lot more people showed up than I had expected.
    I ran into a lot more installation problems than I expected. I had much
    more fun than I expected. We should probably start a whole thread on
    things we need to change in future install-fests ... for now let's just
    bask in the sweet success of this one. Besides, I gotta hit the hay,
    I'm freakin' tired.

    Please, share your thoughts.

    I agree. What's next is the Girls Inc. project. Check out my latest post to the mailing list.

    For those that missed the installfest i've tried to create a play-by-play as best as I could remember it. I am sure that I missed alot. The activity was amazing.
