Hi Jed

In case I missed a response to your questions, apologies up front.

Some of the members on this list may well be developers involved either
directly or indirectly with Ubuntu, or indeed other projects, but this list
is not for them as they have their own.  Neither is it solely for use by
geeks or IT Professionals only.  The sole intent of this list is to help
Ubuntu users in all it's various flavours, to aid, assist and guide, and
occasionally to go off topic - perhaps if you think of the list as more of a
social club with technical expertise thrown in for good measure you'll have
a better understanding of how I see and treat this list.  Now if that
approach is wrong I'll step out into the Vortex ....


PS  Well done Alan too.

Congratulations Alan.

The reason I didn't vote was the fact that you had to be registered on
Launchpad. I followed the link to join and then thought that I had no
right being there. It appeared to be for developers.
Then I thought should I be on this list at all ?  Should I ?
I'm a kubuntu using taxi driver who was told about ubuntu-uk by a chap
who turned up at my local lug (manlug) and asked if there was any
objection to holding joint meetings.
I signed up to this mailing list then, but I've never seen him since.
So the question is -- Is this the right  place to be ?

p.s. I would have voted for you anyway and can we have a screencast of
the election result please ?
