If you're looking for more help on Linux + Wi-Fi (and/or AT&T Internet
connectivity), etc. and/or
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) Desktop CD PC (Intel x86) i386) CD(s)
before the next (2010-07-01) BUUG meeting, you might consider:
Friday evenings (including this evening):
Diablo Valley Linux Users Group http://www.dvlug.org/
Berkeley Linux Users Group http://www.berkeleylug.com/
(I believe next meeting's 2010-06-27 at Bobby G's)
If you're in/around Berkeley, contacts from that group/list, might also
be able to hook you up with a CD sooner.
(Sorry I ran out of CDs yesterday - I will likely have more for the next
BUUG meeting 2010-07-01)
There's of course also BUUG's list, the Berkeley Linux Users Group list, etc.
SF-LUG http://www.sf-lug.org/ also has a quite active list (they also
meet this coming Monday).
Looks like Geeknic2 also meets this Saturday.
Cabal also does quite regular installfests. There are some other
installfests that have been happening that may be closer, though perhaps
not (yet?) on so regular of a schedule (e.g. in Berkeley last Sunday,
San Francisco 2010-05-30, etc.)
Oh, and DNS has been flakey at Au Coquelet Cafe for at least the last two
BUUG meetings. Work-around: configure yourself to use DNS server(s) other
than that what Au Coquelet Cafe's Wi-Fi provides (and that doesn't work)
via DHCP, e.g. Google's public DNS at 220.127.116.11 (if you really don't like
Google's DNS, that's enough for you to start hunting down some other DNS
you might prefer).
