I’m Jesse Nikko Ramos, the Vice-President for the EEE Department wing of UnPLUG (called within the org the “Territorial Subgroup”). I’m an Electronics and Communications Engineering major in my third year of stay in the University, and have been around since the second sem of my first year. Chances are you haven’t seen me running around the EEE Department before unless you went out of your way to go there despite not having classes there during the first semester of your stay in the University. XD
Most people call me Jepy– don’t mind the other members calling me with the other names. I’ll have plenty of time to explain when I see you.
I believe Kuya JM has oriented you quite a bit regarding our group and its activities. You’ll experience one of our projects first-hand, if you’re going to take your EEE 11 laboratory classes in the NSTL. Though it doesn’t look like it, we’re a pretty active org that strives to contribute to the Open Source revolution… Although I have a dual-boot system, I use mostly Open Source software, similar to how you’re doing with OpenOffice now.
I mailed you personally, not only to welcome you to the group, but also to inform you that I will be personally handling your foray into Linux– not just the live CDs you’ve been using, but also the installed versions you see in UP. To help start your journey off, I strongly encourage you to attend the General Assembly. It’s on Friday, from 4-6 PM. It’s a good opportunity to meet me and the members face-to-face, orient you with the org’s conventions, and we have a few surprises in store. =D
I believe that’s all for now, so again, welcome to UnPLUG, and I look forward to meeting you at the GA.
Jesse Nikko dL. Ramos,
Vice-President for EEE Department,
University of the Philippines Linux Users’ Group
