Wow, it has been a year since my last blog and it just prove how bad I am for keeping up with currents. I now have 12.10 and abandoned Win 7. Yes Google is my friend and also decided to get "Ubuntu Made Easy" and "How Linux Works." I would love to praise Ubuntu Forums however it's difficult to get support. I have resigned myself to reading and lots of search on the internet. A lot of time the answer is there because these issues are pretty common as well as the fix. Setting up accounts today and irc channels.

Why SANS for Computer and Information Security Training?
As the leading organization in computer security training, the SANS Institute is known for providing intensive, immersion training designed to help you and your staff master the practical steps necessary for defending systems and networks.
We also develop, maintain, and make available at no cost the largest collection of information security research documents and whitepapers about various aspects of information security and operate the Internet's early warning system - the Internet Storm Center.
At the heart of SANS are the many security practitioners in government agencies, corporations, and universities around the world who invest hundreds of hours each year in research and teaching to help the entire information security community.
What makes SANS courses the best investment for information security training:
I was late in ordering our 10.04 CDs but they arrived today. If you want/need Ubuntu/Kubuntu/ and/or Server CDs please respond to this email with your Name and shipping address. It would also be nice if you could help with the cost of shipping as it will cost me to send them to you. In the PHX valley they will be available free at upcoming Installfest and PLUG east side meeting and east side Stammtische.
I just created a linked in page for the Arizona Ubuntu LoCo team: (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=3014215&trk=myg_ugrp_ovr) in an attempt to make us more visible on the internet and, perhaps, make us easier to find for people needing/wanting our help. If you can think of other places where we can make our presence known, please let us know so we can make use of that info or create an entry for the team and give us the info so we can keep track of it.
You have to read the whole entry to hear about the car.
OK, in last week's teem meeting I mentioned that toddc came up with a great idea about how to hold regular installfests in Tempe and get free advertising. Well, after some discussion with xHans and another PLUG member that is always at installfest, we decided to do a trial run of 3 months at a new location while keeping the UAT installfest going. Todd did a bunch of leg work and found us a location. He found a Community Center Manager that is the Manager of Computer Training for the Community and has a room for us.
