Houston Linux Users Group   (HLUG)

Help Desk TWiki

(Volunteer Linux Support)

Our goal is to create an online knowledge base to share solutions to Linux related issues that come up at HLUG Wednesday Workshop & through the  HAL-PC   Volunteer Help Committee   Linux Resource Desk.

The goal behind the goal is to ease newcomers' transitions into Linux.  To that end, we may consider offering help on the MS Windows versions of Linux software.  Applications like Opera and, to name two of my favorites; or Mozilla, which isn't.  Remember, the best place to get a Windows question answered, is often at a Linux group.

This is just a 1st attempt -- neither the content, nor the format is anywhere near complete.  Look at this as a suggestion of how this space can be used.  Ultimately, I would like to see our "people resources" stay a separate category, with their desired contact info & whatever else they want (w/in 501(c)(3) commercialty guidelines). 

The names on the linked lists are also a 1st attempt -- just the members that sprang to mind on the spur of the moment.


The incompleteness of this distribution list reflects my ignorance, not predjudice.
Suggestions for additions are welcome

Other (I hate "Other", but it's the best I could do.)

Again this list & its component lists are incomplete, see remarks above.
