KUbuntu help needed

From: John Aldrich 
------------------------------------------------------
I have a Compaq Presario F700 laptop with an nVidia GeForce 6100 on-board 
graphics and Broadcom Wi-Fi chipset. For some strange reason, even though I 
told Kubuntu (14.04 LTS) to use the 3rd party software drivers it still wants 
to install Nouveau drivers and refuses to install the Broadcom drivers by 
default. I'm able to get the Broadcom drivers installed, but for some reason, 
it craps out when I try to install the closed-source GeForce drivers. That is 
to say it will install just fine, but then it wont' finish booting.

Any suggestions???

Chatt's first edcamp coming up in August, 2014

From: Phil Shapiro 
------------------------------------------------------


Edcamp's are wonderful unconferences where teachers and others who care about learning 
gather together and spontaneously share questions and answers in sessions that are determined 
on the morning of the event. I recently found out about this edcamp taking place in Chatt. 




"The first edcamp in Chattanooga, TN, will be held August 23, 2014. Free. All invited. Follow at @ edcampGigCity " 


Thanks for spreading the word to anyone you know who would be interested in attending.

If you know folks in Atlanta who might want to attend, it's possible to reserve a round trip Megabus ticket 
for that day for a grand total of $8. If a person is able to travel on Friday, August 22, 2014 -- the round 
trip ticket to Chatt would be $2.

Does anyone have a siwtch they can loan me?

From: Jonathan Calloway 
------------------------------------------------------
Greetings!

 

I need to borrow a 48 port switch for about a month or so.  I don't really
need anything fancy. I have 2 24 port switches that are quite old.  I
suspect they are not long for this earth, and I'm in the process of ordering
a new 48 port to replace them both.  However, I would like to have something
'in my back pocket' so to speak just in case they fail before the new one
can get ordered and delivered.

 

Thanks!

Job opening in Atlanta

From: John Aldrich 
------------------------------------------------------
They want a "desktop support" person proficient in Windows 2000/XP. I figured 
"what the hell" and named a price of $75/hour on a W2. Hopefully that'll scare 
'em off. :) I mentioned I'd need appropriate compensation for overtime/after-
hours work as well... :) I really don't care to get back into IT, *especially* 
supporting XP or Win2K!
