Open Chattanooga Civic Hack Night - Trails!

From: Sean Brewer 

Tomorrow we will have an Open Chattanooga hack night, for trails!:

It will be on the 4th Floor tomorrow night starting at 5:30 until whenever
the library decides to kick us out.

Since we finished mapping the trails on Enterprise South Nature Park in
OSM, we will begin creating an interactive webmap from that:

We also want non-devs involved as well! With the ESNP interactive map we
could use feedback, testing, feature request, UX help. You don't need to be
a dev to do that.

Also, there's not a central location where ALL of the local trails are
documented. Chattanooga has a localwiki that folks can edit:
http://localwiki.net/cha/ where those trails could be listed

If you have any other trail related hacks/ideas, bring those and show up!
We'll try to break into teams by project interest.

Looking for contractor Technicians

From: David White 
I know I probably sound like a broken record, as I've asked this question a
number of times over the past year or two.

But if you know of anyone interested in some freelance / contract /
as-needed PC repair and basic PC troubleshooting & network jobs, please
have 'em contact me: david [at] developcents dot com

Note: if you try to contact me tomorrow or anytime next week, I won't
respond until the following week, as I'm going to be out of town.

But yet again, I've had the situation come up where I need someone to do
something for me because I'm not available to do it (this time it's not an
emergency, thankfully, and I think I have a contractor who can handle the
job - but I need to confirm that by this evening at the latest)

Upgrading from Linux Mint 14 to 17

From: James Nylen 
Ubuntu Quantal ended support recently, so its package repositories went
away. I=E2=80=99m running Linux Mint 14 which is based on Quantal, so now I=
 need to

If I use apt-get dist-upgrade to upgrade to Linux Mint 17, what are the
chances of it working? What kind of breakage will I see, if any?

Chattanooga library 4th floor in the WSJ today

From: Phil Shapiro 

I've written to the Wall Street Journal complaining that they can't keep featuring the Chattanooga Public 
Library in all their upbeat human interest news stories. Other libraries in the country are also innovating. 
Other libraries in the country also love Linux. 


Please let other libraries at least have a chance. (heh) 


New York City is a backwater. You wouldn't expect it to be as advanced as Chattanooga. Give 
it time, though. Give it time.
