Lessons Learned

  1. Need a strip to cover the cables from the front of the room to the network table, to prevent tripping hazzard.
  2. Need to have a flyer available for the LUG.
  3. Need to have thumb drives ready to go with installs.
  4. Need to download 64 bit iso images.
  5. Redirect windows update to Ubuntu.
  6. Times should be recorded by the door person, as the time data was skewed by the use of different clocks, and some of the helpers didn't fill out their sheets properly.
