Red's NOT Dead

As many of you have noticed Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala has been released without a mention on the site. I am sorry, I was coming back from a college visit to Southern Illinois University when my car hit a tarp on the road. Due to the heavy rain I didn't see it and hydroplaned off the highway rolling over twice. It was pretty scary.



Without a doubt, seat belts save lives. I am banged up but still alive. So is my Mini, it was tossed around the back but survived without a scratch.

I'll be back in Chicago on Tuesday and start updating the site. Until then hit up the google group if you need help.

You can see the complete slideshow of the damage to my vehicle here.

Have a question or problem that this article doesn't cover?
Ask our Ubuntu Mini 9 Google Group for help.

Glad your ok.

Seatbelts do save lives.

They have saved me twice already in roll overs.

Dude, take as much time as you need to get back on your feet. Something like that is not easy to come back from.

Best of wishes.
