The Arizona Ubuntu Linux Local Community Team and the Phoenix Linux Users Group would like to help you get the most out of your computer. If you are tired of paying for an Operating System that gets slower as time goes by. If you are tired of an Operating System that gets Viruses, Trojan Horses, Spy Ware, and other Malware. If you want to get more life out of that old PC that just can't seem to keep up: we may have a FREE solution for you. Linux is a free, stable, and complete Operating System that doesn't have the issues that some of the most popular systems have.
Anything event related. You can combine this tag with say an Ubuntu tag to show that it is an Ubuntu Event.

Why SANS for Computer and Information Security Training?
As the leading organization in computer security training, the SANS Institute is known for providing intensive, immersion training designed to help you and your staff master the practical steps necessary for defending systems and networks.
We also develop, maintain, and make available at no cost the largest collection of information security research documents and whitepapers about various aspects of information security and operate the Internet's early warning system - the Internet Storm Center.
At the heart of SANS are the many security practitioners in government agencies, corporations, and universities around the world who invest hundreds of hours each year in research and teaching to help the entire information security community.
What makes SANS courses the best investment for information security training:
Software Freedom Day is coming up again soon. PLUG and the AZ LoCo will be working together to do something to celebrate this. If you are interested at all in helping with this please let Scott Gwin know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and/or emailing Dennis Kibbe at email@example.com. More info can be found at:
http://softwarefreedomday.org/ . Info may be coming in the near future at the PLUG website: http://plug.phoenix.az.us/.
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.
The team meeting has been changed back to 2100 MST again due to the request of many team members and a vote taken in the meeting. Please join us - it's fun and it's your opportunity to voice your wants/needs/opinions about how this LoCo is run. It's also a fun way to get involved, to get acquainted, and to find out what is happening with this Ubuntu and this LoCo.
This past Saturday, July 10 we had a get-together at Nate Hutchings house. It was loosely organized at the last minute and it was a tasty good time. In attendance were flakeparadigm and a bud jawee, Hatthew Helmke, lenards, my friend mathewmpp and myself. Though it would have been very nice to see more of the team in attendance we weren't lacking anyhting. We had planty of good conversation and Nate cooked up tasty hot dogs, hamburgers, bratts and topped it off with a wonderfully smoky blueberry crumble desert.
