Right now I’m in Jogjakarta for some office works. Before I go to Jogjakarta, I already contacted Alvonsius telling him that I’m going to Jogjakarta for one night. Soon as I arrived, I called him so I could meet with some Ubuntu users in this town. Alvon came to The Saphir Jogjakarta Hotel where I stay for this night. He came with 6 other Ubuntu users. We talk a lot about Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo Team and ask them how was the Gutsy Release Party in Jogjakarta.
Today, 8 November 2007 at 23:57, Frans Thamura has transferered the ownership of ubuntu.or.id domain to Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo Team. Thanks Frans!
Today I attend Gutsy Release Party in Jakarta which took place in Papa Rons Pizza Warung Buncit. There are about 50 people that attend the party. I did a presentation about Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo Team while Wisu gave presentation about new features in Gutsy Gibbon.
There are also some games for door prizes. The prizes are some sets of Ubuntu 7.10 DVD Repository and some Ubuntu-ID tshirts. Oh, and the foods are delicious
Some of the participants are Miss Irene from Intel Indonesia, Mr. Rama Yurindra from Zend Indonesia, Mr. Bambang from Biskom Magazine, Mr. Andy Apdhani as an Ubuntu Member, Mr. Adin and Mr. Jan Peter from kambing.ui.edu and many more.
