jferhi all. i just put my name on the wiki to volunteer for open day00:32
jferstill looks as though there are a lot of slots still left00:33
head_laptopjfer, yeah caryb and I will be there all day so we didnĀ“t want to fill it up straight away00:43

head_victimApparently they hold a newcomers session to detail what to expect, what to do, etc for people who haven't been to an LCA before (which is me) and is highly recommended00:59

orly_goso i safely remove it and it is detected in nm menu as 'vodafone'09:43
head_victimApparently needs a modeswitch09:43
orly_gosafely remove means it shows up as usb modem in dmesg09:44
orly_goi was hoping it wouldnt need modeswitch09:45
orly_gothought lucid fixed that09:45
head_victimHmm it does say only for older releases so should work ootb09:45
orly_goi rebooted with it plugged in too, same result09:46
sagaciNever had any trouble with the e176209:47

orly_gohad to edit connections10:26
orly_gothe vodafone one was from another 3g modem :)10:26
head_victimorly_go: good stuff I'm so not good with 3g (the only 3g I have is a home network gateway from Telstra)10:26

head_victimThe charlotte street address 12:35
sagaciAh ok12:36
head_victimIt was going to be a couple of streets away from the venue before the floods12:37
sagaciSo will urbanest people need to take a bus now to the venue12:39
head_victimNone of the "official" venues are within comfortable walking distance12:40
head_victimBit of a shame but really good organisation by the lca team to completely swap venues in a week or so12:49
sagaciYeah true12:51
=== poggle_ is now known as poggle
blahdeblahhead_victim: I've checked the motherboards i have in my spares box, and they're all Intel D845GLLY - no AGP/PCIe; PCI only.  There should be full specs on Intel's site.  If you want any (i have 3), let me know.20:44
