akgranerjeffrash, honestly I am not sure what that means going forward other than helping with the overall governance of the Ubuntu Community for 2 years15:42
jeffrashdo you guys feel ubuntu is getting more or less compatible with your hardware?17:44

akgranerahh ok18:07
akgranerso slow til Feb?18:07
internalkernelpretty much, but  my consulting has been picking up...18:08
internalkernelbut that's easy for me to schedule since I can do it from home18:09
akgraneroh cool18:10
akgranerthat's exciting for you  - happy to hear it18:10
internalkernelthanks... I've been working on building that for a while now...18:11
akgraneryeah  - I just updated my resume - and sending it out18:12
internalkernelwell, you've got your name on a several large ticket items... aside from the CC, there's the Book and the mag you write for...18:13
internalkernelthat's gotta be worth something on a resume18:13
akgranertotally  - I hope18:14
akgranerwe'll start working on the 7th edition of the book after the 12.04 beta 118:14
akgranerbefore that  - too many things change18:14
internalkernelnice... that book is a big help to beginners...18:16
internalkernelI haven't tried oneiric again... not since the last #failure18:16
internalkernelIm actually running Mint at the moment since they kept Gnome2 and a working version of Compiz...18:17
internalkernelIll try it again in a month or two... I want the dust to settle... but for the record, this is the _first_ time I have been unable to use the beta...18:18
akgranerinternalkernel, lubuntu is cool too18:19
internalkernellol... that was my first fallback...18:20
internalkernelThe installer died due  to some 2 year old bug...18:20
internalkernelit was awesome...18:20
internalkernelI had to install Xubuntu, then Lubuntu on top of it... but, the bottom line, they were all broken...18:20
internalkernelIt was fine... if you didn't change anything... used the defaults18:21
akgranerahh ok18:21
internalkernelbut when I install CCSM to configure compiz... it would break compiz completely...18:21
akgraneryeah you mentioned that18:21
internalkerneldo you know what happens when you log in and compiz is broken?18:21
internalkernelnothing... absolutely... nothing... it's awesome.18:21
internalkernelI like so much of the new design, and it felt like they cleaned up the interface quite a bit...18:22
internalkerneleven though Nautilus is now as ugly as SquirrelMail18:22
internalkernelbut, I need _my_ tweaks... it's my methodology that makes my system productive...18:23
internalkernelfor me of course...18:23
akgranerI know when I installed the beta I had to fix my desktop18:23
internalkernelI expect that from a beta...18:23
akgranerI had to run  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop^18:24
akgranerthat fixed a lot of crap for me18:24
internalkernelI was prepared for some brokenness... some gnashing of teeth... but three days later - when I boot my system up and nothing works again... I'm done.18:24
internalkernelyeah... you know me, not only am I hard to please, I'm also very particular...18:24
akgranerI am learning how to set up my own server at UDS - jcastro is going to show me18:24

akgranerI tried out Ubuntu in the Cloud - their wordpress instance on Amazon18:25
internalkernelI saw that post too...18:25
