Have you tried looking for a Linux User Group? If not, check this out.

Forgive me if my geography's way out but this seems to be the main New Jersey in the US 0f A as viewed by a Limey.

Play Bonny!

These two links may help;
Quote:
User Groups:
Linux User Groups <- World list
Linux Meetup Groups <- 'Meet other local Linux enthusiasts to talk about the latest news and software'
Plus you can see if a local College or University has a LUG in your area.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

That's odd. Are they still active or was the email address correct?

I attended the U of D for a semester back in 1996. It was an interesting experience.

There's PLUG. http://www.phillylinux.org/

I'm not sure how active it is, but there's a link to a calendar at the site. I used to live in upper Delaware, but their meeting locations at the time were not convenient for me.

There's also Linux Lugcast, an online LUG that meets via Mumble.

Hi...

That would give your meeting a better impression, I think.
