Your best bet would be to check the University campus paper, or visit the CompuSci dept and look at the bulletin boards to see what's posted. A chat with students or instructors wouldn't hurt.

Hi,

Check out the University Libraries or Jr. Colleges. Most do meet at the library computer labs as most academic labs are not always open to the public. Student affairs would be another place to check. Student newspapers or even Open bulletin boards that have public access.

Check out the Local University or College web site. Some pages are open to the public while others are restricted.

Well, it's 2013, and I'm in the same boat as jcockrell33. I too am interested in a Little Rock LUG. Anyone from the future reads this, feel free to post here or PM me, and we can get in touch.

Just got a Raspberry Pi and have been reading up on Debian. I want to find/develop more 'hacker culture' in Little Rock.

Can you explain this phrase? " 'hacker culture' "

I doubt I could give a definitive explanation that would satisfy all concerned parties, but I suppose I could clarify what I intended to convey by using it.

I'm interested in finding (or in the case of its non-existence, helping to build) a community of people who are interested in a variety of activities, mostly centering around 'tinkering'. I personally am interested mostly in software development, and I would like to learn more about electronics. I would be very interested in meeting up with anyone who has been fooling around with a RPi, Arduino, or devices in that vein. I would also be interested in more 'macroscopic' tinkering (I'm thinking welding, carpentry, etc.); however, I have absolutely zero knowledge or experience in those areas, so I don't have much to offer there. An RC plane or car project that utilizes an RPi would be pretty cool I think.

I hope that clarifies my intentions. If any of these things sound up your alley, and you're in/around the Little Rock area, feel free to PM me.

What do you think jefro? Does that justify the use of a connotation ridden term like 'hacker culture'?

It seems that a lot of offline LUG things don't actively do things these days. They still exist a lot of times in mailing lists and other online things. But outside of an anual linuxfest of sorts, you might not ever meet up like the days of old. Not really that surpising given the costs of living like gas and stuff these days. With H-1B visas and outsourcing making I.T.(code monkeys) more of a hobby than a liveable wage occupation. Unless you happen to know someone, live in a particular region, yadda yadda yadda.

What have you found since this post? I live in Tallahassee, Florida, but am interested in helping a friend who lives in Jacksonville, AR. I, too, can't find any LRLUG but am interested in finding a humanitarian person who would be willing to at least install LibreOffice on a friend's fairly new Toshiba laptop and, at most, be willing to dual-boot it with Ubuntu (and get it all personalized) for her. Anyone knowing anything helpful can pm me as well as posting here. Thanks for any help.

Well, I will as soon as I figure out how to do that. Sorry, but I just don't see it so far.

I have no idea, lol. I added you to my "contacts" and added you as a "friend". Maybe that will enable private messages.

Alas, I don't either, so far, but I'll keep looking. I was looking for a members list and didn't find one, but I'm sure there is one here somewhere. Regarding "friends," I'll see if that will lead to something. Thanks for being available.

Hi Zyufin and rlynwood....

To enable private messaging, make sure you are logged in and click on "LQ UserCP" on the right hand side under "My LQ," then click on "Edit Options" under "Settings and Options" on the left hand side (under "Your Control Panel.") When that page comes up scroll down to "Messaging and Notification" and then check "Enable Private Messaging." Then click "Save Changes" at the bottom. Then, hopefully, at the top where it shows "Welcome, (Your user name)" when you click on "Private Messages," it will work.

Regards...

Thanks for those clear instructions. However, I saw no "Enable Private Messaging" under Messaging & Notification; instead, I have the subsections "Receive Email" and "Visitor Messaging." Visitor Messaging already was checked, but I think this is ok.

Then, under Welcome rlynwood, when I click on the "Forum Jump" drop-down/"Private Messages," I get this LQ message:

rlynwood, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Am I not qualified to send/receive pms?
