kurup, i'm guessing r7 can send you a CD.

When requesting a CD, also let folks know if you want the source code as well (e.g. if you are a developer) and if you want CD or DVD.

Post subject:  2 DVDs blag 60000

i need those two DVDs of BLAG. (new 60000 blag)
I want to spread the word of blag. I liked the distribution so much. Alas, my download is kinda limited, so downloading the whole 2 DVDs could be too much for me (in optimal situation I could get it in less then a month, but probably very corrupted). Is someone able and willing to send me those?

I want to give it to all those friends of mine who have even more limited internet. Already gave them 50003 cd version, but soon i have found that it is not enough for them.

I can send you disc with something or a postcard in return :)
(or just pm you with a thank you note, just tell me what would you like)

cheers lads

I would support the project of blag with money, but the worlds politic is not letting me. :/

To the linuxstore folks, not blag. That's totally fine by me though.

Matias,

I deleted your post since it probably had a bit too much personal info for a public forum. To order a CD for free, just fill out the form here:

Classes? Hrm. Londoners are lucky in that they can come to Blag meets. You are lucky in that you (big assumption here) have a decent internet connection. You can ask for help here on the forums or irc and read the wikis https://wiki.blagblagblag.org/Main_Page.

I've found that the best way to learn this Linux stuff (and it works for me) is to:-

0 - Look for a Linux User Group, (LUG) in your area or start one!
1-Work out what your problem is
2- Make notes on it, (e.g. "this is my hardware I don't know how to install" or "how do I play music"?)
3- Work out which are the best or simplest options
4- Try them out
5- Note the one(s) that works for you
6- Share the info.

You don't really need classes per se, just reassurance or guidance that you are doing the "right thing". Steps 1-6 can be soooo easily achieved in one night of a LUG ;)

-*- whisper mode -*- Do you know how much I learnt from Jebba and the other chaps just by watching over their shoulders? ;)
