[TriLUG] Sat. Installfest

That's what I heard.
And if this is the sentiment from TriLUG overall (which I hope and
think that it isn't) I guess we (LUG at NCSU) don't have to worry about
working with you guys in the future.
It had been discussed to do something like this in the past, and this
was the attitude that we talked about, and why we decided not to do
it. Sure we may be small, but do pretty darn well for our size. Before
you go spouting off about distros and networks, take a look at
Harrelson G108 and the local mirror (I believe its
mirror.linux.ncsu.edu, and it may be restricted to the NCSU IP block).
Its got a killer network, fat pipe, and always works without a hitch.
The PXE/DHCP box I'm sure was convenient and helpful, but without it,
things wouldn't have fallen apart as more than one person has
mentioned. We've managed to get through plenty of installfests on our
own, and it looks like we'll keep it that way.
Sure, more notice would have been great, but you know what, that
wasn't our fault. Don't lump it in with your perceived problems on our
end. We were approached and asked if TriLUG could "share" our
intstallfest, with the hopes that both our groups would benefit. I
would dare say that we benefited from having more people there than we
would have had, and TriLUG benefitted from having a great space to
use. If it was underutilized, thats not our fault.
Heather-- If you're out there, and I've overstepped my bounds, by all
means, step in and say something, but I for one, will not be
supporting working with TriLUG again until we can get this superiority
complex sorted out.
