Re: [ruby-81] Kubuntu gui failure... - A dist-upgrade won't re-partition or re-format the filesystem. It will only download and install system packages and won't touch his personal files. Adrien Apr 2, 2013 11:50 AM

Re: [ruby-81] We need space for our Meetup! - Hi Jon, I've noticed that some recent Django Meetups have been held at a co-working space called Tech Liminal in Oakland.
