Website Problems!

You’ve probably noticed that the site’s theme has changed from the usual.  This is because our old theme is having some problems with the newer version of WordPress that just came out.


Upcoming Events Calendar

We’ve created a Google Calendar with upcoming Full Circle-related events (and a few Ubuntu-related ones, too). You can hop on over to to take a look or add us if you have a Google account. All times will be in UTC, so you will need to add/take hours as necessary.


The Full Circle Podcast needs Panelists!

Saluton Amikojn! (Esperanto for Hello Friends!)

In order to encourage discussion on the topics, and to keep me company whilst recording, I am looking for a group of co-hosts for our panel. Podcasting experience isn’t necessary (although it is helpful), but if you have a passion for *buntu topics, are a positive and opinionated person, then we want your application!

Email your applications to podcast [AT] We can’t wait to have you on the show!

PS: Podcast related topics will be discussed at the next General Meeting. If you are interested, please attend if you can. I’m sure that Ron would like some company 😉

EDIT: Hi guys.  We have plenty of applications at the present time.  I have responded to those who have sent emails, and some of those guys will be on Episode 10 of The Penguin Central Podcast.  Thank you for your quick response!


Downloading issues

There seems to be some comments saying how difficult it is to download an issue of Full Circle, I’d just like to clarify this:

  1. Click the Download tab at the top of the page
  2. Click the Issue you would like to download
  3. Click the language you would like to download.

Easy as that. :)


O’Reilly – Whats New in Ubuntu 7.10

Brian DeLacey, from O’Reilly Media, has written an excellent article about what’s new in Ubuntu 7.10 and has kindly given Full Circle a mention so head over to his article, have a read and give the man a Digg!
