ALE July 30 cookout meeting

Filed at 11:55 am under by jkinney

July 30 starting around 4pm

Bring something to grill and the family (kids very welcome). I’ll (JimK) be making some sides. Adult beverages with responsibility are certainly welcome. Note the preponderance of “beer snobs” in ALE these days – so that Bud Light you were thinking about bringing will go home with you afterwards.

Note: my house is also inhabited by 4 cats. If you have allergies, you’ve been warned.

Email Jim Kinney off list for the address.

ALE merging with GA-400 Linux meetups

Filed at 1:58 pm under by jkinney

Things are moving along on this. I (Jim Kinney) became the official organizer of the GA-400 site about a week ago. The folks at Meetup.com have been very helpful in the transition.

Some stuff that’s needed is a new banner. The old ALE banner is looking dated. Maybe it’s time to generate a new one – 960x160px. Got an offer to help from Jason (THANKS!!) so between the two of us we may have some to look in a a short time.

JD has been a huge help in wrangling/hijacking helping make this merger happen :-)  Ever few days now I get a phone call or email from a new person looking at ALE because of the GA 400 group pointing them our way.

As soon as we figure out how, we will setup some sub groups to accommodate the growing distance between meeting – central, top-end, NW and now Southside. YAY!
