I just wanted to announce that ChOLUG (Christian Oline Linux User Group) has been launched and is orbiting jqsoftware.com.

Here's the reason why I created ChOLUG.
Early last week, I thought. I wish I could join a LUG but I'm never in one place long enough! (Being a missionary with two houses 1 on the mission field and the other in the city where we stock up on american goods and stuff).

So I got the idea of creating an online linux user group. However, while in the middle of configuring it, I had this deep feeling in my gut that God wanted me to change my views and make it a CCN-like community that circles around Linux.

So if you have Linux installed on your computer, head on over to cholug.jqsoftware.com. I'm waiting for Google and other search engine to spread the news, (stumbleupon.com too) but you can too.

If you really, really want to, go ahead Just promise me to learn something about linux that you've never learned before and that you'll notify me or delete your account if your dad says no.

Also do me a favor and don't go around telling friends who aren't Linux users or any friends until you get linux. I prefer that this be for Linux users only (not to sound mean, but isn't that the whole point of a LUG?)

Welcome! The forums will be active soon as I am switching to phpBB
(This means that you'll have to re-register. If you registered on the front page, you can post links, FAQ's and News Articles)

Yup. If you need to ask a simple question, Google or join linuxquestions.org.
Howver, since we're still small, I'll acept some newbie questions (but not like an entire thread dedicated to: what's the console command to list a directory?)

I like the ChOLUG. I had to register twice, though. Once for the main page and then once for the forum.

The FAQ's (I think you can see 'em) state that unless you want to post news and stuff, you don't need two accounts.

ROTFL, never seen that one.
