Got my NEW new Ubuntu Laptop - Tom Ray's Day 200928


I had ordered a new Ubuntu Linux laptop for video editing but the one I originally got while it had tons of RAM for what I needed the battery would only last about 3 hours?!

Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example.

More planning.

I spent a good half hour typing out the questions we had. But I knew planning a trip for the band wouldn't be easy.
