    Ubuntu NH Presents... July Technical Film Night in Hampton

    The Ubuntu Local Community Team of NH is presenting a four-part film series, of
    "BBS: The Documentary". The film will be shown at the HoloDek gaming center at
    8 Merrill Industrial Drive in Hampton. Each of the four chapters will be shown
    through July on the Wednesday at 7:00 PM.

    July 9. First in a four-part series. "Baud" introduces the story of
    the beginning of the BBS, including interviews with Ward Christensen
    and Randy Suess, who used a snowstorm as an inspiration to change the
    world.

    July 16. Second in a four-part series. "Sysops and Users" introduces
    the stories of the people who used BBSes, and lets them tell their own
    stories of living in this new world.

    July 23. Third in a four-part series. "Fidonet" covers the largest
    volunteer-run computer network in history, and the people who made it
    a joy and a political nightmare.

    July 30. Fourth in a four-part series. "Artscene" tells the
    rarely-heard history of the ANSI Art Scene that thrived in the BBS
    world, where art was currency and battles waged over nothing more than
    pure talent.

    We talk with many people and attend many conference events, sometimes we wonder if we are really effecting anyone's computing experience. I received this email today that I asked permission to share.

    I just wanted to thank you. I've been trying to get Linux working on one PC or another for almost a decade and am now happy to say that I'm running 8.04 flawlessly on 30GB of space via WUBI on my XP Dell!

    If it weren't for needing a colour calibrated monitor and PhotoShop CS3 for work, (neither work with WINE yet) I'd blow the XP away completely!
