Symmetriawhy do technical meetings always have to start with a bunch of speeches that are nothing more than political cocksucking 05:57
ThatGraemeGuylol06:00
Symmetriaseriously, its a case of "zomg we're so wonderful, and we'll suck the cocks of every politician in 100 mile radius just to make sure they think so as well"06:00
SymmetriaIm like, they are just people, the same as all of us, DO something and I will respect you for it, but I aint gonna respect someone just for a position06:01
ThatGraemeGuyyeah, i don't enjoy environments like that either06:02
ThatGraemeGuyi've only has 1 job at a big corporate and I wasn't even there for a year before I packed it in06:03
Symmetriaheh this isn't a corporate, Im at an afrinic meeting06:04
Symmetriaopening ceremony06:04
SymmetriaI find the political crap so disingenuous though06:04
ThatGraemeGuysame thing06:04
ThatGraemeGuycorporates have the same political crap, but it isn't unique to them06:05
Symmetriaheh, nah, the corporate political crap is there, but it aint half as bad :) well, it aint in any corporate I'd ever work for and I work for some pretty large ones06:06

somaunngood Kilos15:54
Kilosthats good15:54
somaunnwish i could get some advices15:54
Kilosoh i found a site where you can download free linux books15:55
Kilosone was redhat or fedora15:55
Kilosill try find it just now15:55
somaunni want to organize in-house hackfest or hack parties but still I odn't how they are organized15:55
Kilosdidnt i leave a message with maaz for you?15:55
somaunnKilos: i receved it, Maaz did deliver it to me 15:56
Kilosfor starters you make sure you got good internet then you invite geeks15:56
Kilosah good15:56
Kilosthen you get each one to bring something different to eat and drink15:57
somaunnKilos: please let me summarize it 15:58
Kiloslol im just guessing man15:59
somaunn1- Good Internet link15:59
somaunn2- Every person to come with soft drink15:59
somaunn3- invite Geeks15:59
somaunnam I right15:59
somaunn?15:59
Kilosyeah16:00
Kilosalso you can contact some before hand to see what theyd like to do then you add what you want to do16:00
Kiloswhat do you want to hack?16:01
somaunnKilos: nice question and that is the first Point ... I though Hackfest was like parties where we come learn then apply learned or acquired tekniks 16:02
Kilosi thought it was for hacking apps that dont work16:03
gremblePretty sure that both those are valid definitions16:03
somaunnThink that's also a point to consider16:04
grembleYou'd probably have to decide what it is that you want to do16:04
Kilosbut your main aim is first to get a group together to get to know each other and share ideas16:04
Kilosjust have a geeknick for starters16:05
somaunnfirst i want it to be a moment where we come and share knowledges by presenting already prepared topics (html5, linux, cli, etc...)16:05
Kilosok16:05
Kilosmail them and see who is having the most problems with what then build from there16:08
somaunnKilos: nice ideas16:09
somaunni was also thinking of starting from the begining "Linux: The Basics"16:09
Kilosor go with the lpi stuff16:10
KilosMaaz: lpi manuals16:10
MaazKilos: Huh?16:10
KilosMaaz: lpi manual16:10
Maazhttp://www.linuxcertification.co.za/sites/default/files/LPIManual_v_09.pdf16:10
Kilosjust about everything is in there16:11
somaunnWell received Kilos16:11
Kilosgremble: give advice man16:14
grembleOn?16:14
Kiloson the above stuff16:14
grembleSeems like you guys are sorting it out quite nicely16:15
grembleChoosing a topic depends on your audience16:15
Kilosive never had a geek party16:15
grembleI generally don't play well with people, so I don't attend such things either16:15
somaunngremble: a lot of things needs to be done in this area of the globe16:16
Kiloslol16:16
Kilosdepending on the others is where you start16:17
Kilosif the are all IT pros then you might need to skip basics16:17
Kilosbut if there are noobs too then split the group and do basics with the noobs16:18
somaunnwish we could start with "Linux: The Basics" then progressively move to others such as Cisco, html5, php, WiFi, Network troubleshooting etc...16:19
Kilosand if someone asks what is sudo then pull your hair out16:19
somaunnwill focused on noobs then only invite geeks to present topics and animate workshops16:20
Kilosthe trick is knowing your audience16:20
Kilosits good to help noobs and get a couple of pros to help you teach them and it should grow on its own16:21
somaunnyeah Kilos now you got it right bro16:22
Kilosoh ya in that link i sent you there is a variety of linux books, from beginners to admin16:22
somaunnalso thinking we can do Ubuntu party sometime16:27
Kiloswhat i like about ubuntu is that mostly everything just works16:29
Kilosso not much fixing needed16:29
somaunnYeah Kilos but if things works like that then we won't feel any difference with Win16:30
Kilosubuntu has grown in leaps and bounds since 8.1016:30
Kilosdo you prefer fixing things?16:31
somaunnyeah sometime, it gives me a better view of the system and I feel like flying 16:32
Kiloslol16:32
somaunncommand...command...command....16:32

Kilosif you like playing install tinycorelinux and work your way through that16:33
Kilosor run it from ram16:33
somaunnKilos: lol16:34
somaunnVbox will be the medium16:34
somaunncan't sacrifice an hdd to do tests16:34
Kilosya virtual is good16:35
