Hey guys,
I have 2 items that I would like to discuss, either at the meeting, or on
this list.

1) Expanding my geek-dev knowledge:  I've made a couple attempts to learn
packaging and RAD (ie GLADE) technology.  So far, I run into obstacles, and
put it aside.  I would like to learn anything related to Ubuntu
development.  It would be nice to do it with other people if there are
interested folks.  So, I was wondering if there could be hacking
meetups/components to this LoCO?
Also, I thought someone mentioned learning about server management
technologies.  Did that happen, can I join?

2) The school stuff: My brother is studying to be a k-12 educator of some
sort, and he is newly converted to Ubuntu.  He originally got hooked because
it was easier to watch pirated movies with it, but I think he has started to
like it in general.  He asks me about options for educational software, and
I don't know what to tell him.  I've seen seeing little blurbs about you
guys trying to get into the education sector, but I didn't see anything on
the website on what you guys have done.  Have you made any software
selections and/or evaluations?

So those are my questions, kinda shooting from the hip so to speak.  I
probably won't attend the meeting, unless its important that I do (I haven't
been anyway, because transportation was an issue, but I just moved into
Somerville).  I have a class that I've signed up for, for the next 2 months
on Thursday evenings.  I can totally skip it, I won't loose any money or
miss much.  But, it would be nice to know how productive my attendence will
be before I make that decision.

Anyway, happy Jaunty Jackalopes everyone!
