With the release cycle of Ubuntu being every 6 months with one being in April and the other being in October, we've normally had our InstallFests around the same time. There have been many (well one or two) requests to put the April InstalFest back a month to May, so that is what we are going to do this time.
Another resaon for the date change is that the next release 8.04 is a bit special as its the new LTS (long term support) which will eventually replace 6.06 LTS.
Also, as usual, we'll be heading to the Sanbar afterwards for informal banter and blather.
ManLUG normally meets at 14:00 hrs on the third Saturday of the month with the odd exception like December which would be too close to the Christmas festivities. We try and get two willing volunteers to give a talk for each meeting, but sometimes this is hard work. Installfests are usually held around twice a year. (April/October)
As a matter of policy, the University have asked us to bring some photo identification to show the porters if we are asked. Please remember that the University is kind enough to let us use their facilities without a fee, so perhaps we can agree to this gracefully.
