Linux User Group
Linux User Group’s are great places to get support, meet like minded people, and get free internet and hardware (sometimes :p)
New Zealand has a national LUG – the NZ Linux Usergroup – which is based in Auckland but has members from all around the country.
The NZLUG’s webpage has links to the other groups around the country – in Waikato Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Canterbury, Kapiti, Christchurch, Wairarapa and Duneden.
If you don’t have a LUG close to where you live, it might be a good idea to seek out some other pengiunheads and start one.
LUG’s tend to have a primary way of contact: electornic mailing lists.
These are special e-mail adresses that members “subscribe” to.
Then anyone who is subscribed can send an e-mail or reply to that address and it is sent to all the members. Kinda of like BCC’s but only better, because most have onlinen archives that are indexed by your favourite search engine (IE google).
Mailing List Ettiquite
When posting to a mailing list, please type in full, correct English (no MSN speak :p) and keep your message brief, polite and to the point (include more details if asked).
We also ask that you send e-mails in plain text rather than formatted HTML as HTML messages are likely to go straight into the trash without being read. Last-Modified: 2007-03-07 19:38:50
