Re: [vox-tech] Re: wifi
I have been focused on my debian machine for weeks now however I can only go
so far due to my lack of knowledge in this field. If no wifi in the area
then at least I can have a good demo of other things such as tux paint, tux
racer (If I ever get my 3d going), open office, and a whole lot of eye candy
that non geeks just eat up by the shovelful.
I have practically begged for some help with a recent vox-tech email post but
haven't received a single email reply , or phone call for that matter. Not
one. Figured that since this is a demo to help our cause I would have a lot
of replies. Maybe it is human nature. Maybe that no one really knows me.
Maybe a little of both.
I shall persevere however difficult my obstacles may be. One man from this
group, Tim Riley, will come to assist me on Saturday so all is not lost. He
is a very knowledgeabe person and a good friend of mine that I know I can
count on in a clutch situation.
Anybody is more than welcome at my house to give their two cents about our
demo or just to hang out and be a little sociable. Just email me. Do have
to finish an abs repair on a suburban for a davis firefighter but that wont
take too much time at all.
Btw...if anybody from this group needs vehicle repair or just some advice from
a knowledgable mechanic, please let me know. I will bend over backwards to
help this group out in anyway that I can.
