    I'll try to be there - may have to sneak it in during lunch, so no guarantees.

    lunch? you in the UK?

    Also note on the agenda is the topic to do away with 3rd party forums, so the cross-distro ppc forum might take some extra work.

    Nah, I just work some strange hours sometimes.

    Now don't laugh - one good thing came out of this - I finally got into IRC. Yup, something I've avoided for 20 years. Thought I'd better be prepared in case I am able to make it.

    Now listening on #ubuntu-powerpc

    I picked up a iMac G3- it still works. Most of the world's "electronic waste" isn't rubbish yet- it still works. My iMac fortunately wasn't taken to the dump, but somebody had it and it was gathering dust. I managed to get it off my local free-cycle. I really want to put Xubuntu on this thing!

    As a matter of fact, I managed to install Mac OS X 10.3 today- and I'm loving it!

    I still think that the idea of a separated Apple PPC Users and Apple Intel Users was better, and I must agree- people will pick up old and seemingly useless hardware and put Linux on it purely out of curiosity- surely then, Ubuntu must make seperate Apple Forums, for separate things!

    Unfortunately, it is when I am normally driving to work. Hopefully, I can figure something out.
