AZLOCO now has a meet-up account https://www.meetup.com/Ubuntu-Arizona/. We will be posting our meetings and events there as well as on the Team web site calendar http://azloco.org/node/28 and the Ubuntu Arizona LoCo Team portal http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-arizona/. Hopefully this will reach additional people to inform them of our activities.
Back when I was distro hopping after I became dissatisfied with the operating system that I was using, it was not uncommon for me to have two, three, or even four operating systems on the same hard drive. An incident occurred at the recent Installfest on the 3rd of December that brought to mind a a small application that I had used to change the default operating system, Grub Customizer.
At a recent #ubuntu-us-az meeting, this url was posted as an easy way to generate a password. I kinda liked option 4 which uses perl, available in most Linux distros. Should you not have it, apt-get install perl will install it.
Two of us drove from Sierra Vista to attend the initial meeting of the Tucson Linux Meet-Up. The meeting took place at the Summit Hut, 5251 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson from 6-7:30pm. There were 11 attendees. After an introduction of all those present to include their backgrounds there was a discussion on the direction(s) that the group should take to meet the members needs and desires. The concept of presentations to the group was well received and several attendees volunteered to give them.
The location for the 1 October 2016 and the 5 November 2016 Installation Festival/Linux Workshop has changed. Since the University of Advancing Technology is using all of the rooms on the 1st of October and the 5th of November, we will be moving the Install-fest to Gangplank, http://gangplankhq.com/chandler/, 260 S Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ 85225. There is free public parking just across the street next to Circle K. The time will remain the same 10-4. The Install-fest for 15 October 2016 will remain unchanged and will meet at UAT.
Three of us from Sierra Vista drove up to Tucson to attend an “unofficial” Tucson Free Unix Group meeting at Cafe Luce in Main Gate Square outside of the University of Arizona on 31 July 2016 at 2:30 pm. There were four Tucson residents there who were interested in starting physical meetings for the group. We provided them with POCs for both AZLOCO and the Cochise Linux User Group in Sierra Vista and some basic information on communication between members and some requirements for holding Installation Festivals/Linux Workshops.
