Good luck with your club in the Hudson Area. I am sure there are a few
grey haired ex DEC employees who would be interested in joining.
However, have you checked out the local LUG (Linux User Group). There
are several in MA with the oldest being the Boston Group (Formerly
Boston Computer Society).
Good Luck in promoting FC6. In my local Lug (HantsLug) it is a bit of an
an uphill battle against the majority who seem for some strange reason
to prefer distros like Debian and Ubuntu (sigh) however I do get some
envious looks when they see me running DB2, Oracle and WebSphere on my
FCn systems.(If only IBM would sort out the threading libraries for MQ...)

I am writing the Introducing Fedora article this weekend and I hope
to have it ready for
review on Sunday Evening. I am using OpenOffice Writer as my word
always use Open Source software for any task I have to perform. FC6
will be ready in
3 days, I hope all goes well. I would like to request a Free Media
DVD from Thomas
Chung to avoid trying to download a torrent on a slow DSL line. I
want to create a
Computer Club in my hometown of Hudson, MA. I have to purchase a 50
DVD+Rs so I can distribute FC6 to everyone who joins my club. I'm
Fedora Ambassador this weekend as well. Wish me luck! :D

1. Full Legal Name: Edward A. Gantt
2. City,Country: Rocklin, CA, USA
3. Status: Student, although I am presently setting up a consulting
business. Check out http://www.infotechsource.biz for more
details. I welcome comments about this website.
4. I am going to Heald College in Roseville, CA, studying computer
5. My goals:
a. Writing documentation experience I could show to a prospective
b. Experience with participation on a team. One can't be a success
in life being a "lone ranger."
c. Making a contribution in the Linux community. Instead of
complaining, I would like to do something.
6. My interests:
a. Phone modem wireless communication from virtually anywhere
using a Linux platform.
b. Using Linux for entertainment, i.e. MP3 playback.
c. Making Linux applications and data port over to Microsoft
7. My skills:
a. I possess elementary word-processing, spreadsheet, and database
b. I know basic Linux commands.
c. I am able to work from a standalone laptop PC with a solo FC4 OS.
d. I can access the Internet from my FC4 laptop either at a coffee
shop or at home.
e. I believe that I am a good writer because I have done well in
my English composition classes.
f. My technical experience is mainly electronic instrumentation
calibration and repair. I have written manual test procedures
and have tested them. Some of the test software I used was based
a UNIX platform
g. I know a little bit about QBasic programming associated with
h. I have assembled and have repaired network coaxial cables. I also
know how to make CAT5 cables.
i. I am CompTIA A+ certified and Novell CNA certified.
I believe that participation in a Linux Project would be a rich and
rewarding experience to supplement my educational experience at
Heald College. I also think that Linux needs to be more competitive
in the United States as far as the PC business is concerned, so I
would like to help. In my view, this business seems to be dominated
by Apple and Microsoft although this situation in all likelihood
should change. I will do the best I can. I promise to remain humble
because I don't know every thing. I will try to be respectful to
all, so let me know how to address you in a manner that suits you.
Best regards to all,
Edward Gantt (just calling me Ed is ok)
Just FYI, I know there have been requests piling up in the wiki
PublishQueue. I have had to switch laptops three times in the past
week, between a hardware failure and Rawhide testing, so I haven't had
time to reinstall my web sandbox (part of the requirements to do
publishing, so I can test the results before pushing to the real site).
I am going to have semi-stability for the next couple of weeks now, so
expect some of those things to be cleared out shortly.

I will be needing a temporary LOA from things. My father died at 08:35
UTC Oct 11, 2006 at the age of 80. He died from a massive cranial bleed.
He did not suffer long. Thank you all for your help and time put in to
the release notes, please help Karsten and Paul in making sure we don't
miss a beat.

Sorry, I spent too much of our time today on trying to grasp something
about PO, POT, and CVS. You can see the latest notes on our tasks here:
* Installation Guide going in for final translation
* Desktop User Guide to be announced as open draft for FC6 release
* Working out updates for fedora-release-notes package following release

In a rawhide system with Greek locale there is a report that when a
user clicks on release notes link (welcome page) an English version of
release notes appears.
Although there is a html file containing Greek release notes, FireFox
opens the wrong file...
Is this a problem with other locales or Greek specific?
Can we do something?
This is going to be fun, Fedora Core is my favourite OS from all the
ones I tried over the years, but I always come back to RH/FC. I
mainly write screenplays and prose but I haven't been produced yet so
maybe through this Docs project, I will get more recognition from
peers and maybe FC will be used more after version 6. I definitely
think so. What is the best open source screen capture tool for the
MAC? I visited an Open Source MAC Software site, I forget the name
of it. Even on a MAC, I try to find open source apps/utilities. I'm
applying for Fedora Ambassador next week so I can explore how best to
promote FC in my town of Hudson, MA.
