There are two Linux user groups in Fort Wayne Indiana. This one was founded by Joe Rice about ten years ago when he was in high school. He is now a software engineer. The other LUG well established and I am a member of that group and you can be too. They can be reached at: 


Back to this LUG. I would like to keep this LUG going to support beginning users. I am a novice and have had many challenges with computers, networks and programing. I have found some resources and learned a few things I am willing to share. Participation in this LUG isn't limited by your location or any meeting attendance. I'll try to build a presence that will facilitate and accomadate all users.


Your participation is encouraged use my e-mail below to volunteer with building or maintaining the site or to submit: media, material, comments, questions, links you name it!


My personal challenges right now using Linux are IP addressing and the network. I have a DELL server connectewd to a Comcast (cable) gateway running Ubuntu 8.10 Linux Server. I'm learning about The addressing from; registrar>comcast DNS>gateway appliance>DELL 605T box>Ubuntu 8.10>Apache2. Some people have told me IP addressing is complicated and I agree. The other LUG in Fort Wayne Indiana, we'll call them LUG1, sends e-mail from time to time referencing Rocky and Bullwinkle, "This time for sure, Rocky!" I get a kick out of that. Try and try again.
