I got Ubuntu installed few years ago and never got any training on how to use this system so I am looking for live chat for questions I may have as they come up.
Is this available?

Ubuntu (and Linux in general) uses IRC for support and collaboration quite extensively. If you're not familiar with IRC take a look at this beginners guide. The #ubuntu channel is where ubuntu support happens, and where you will want to ask your questions.
You'll need an IRC client. I recommend hexchat which you can install with the command:
sudo apt-get install hexchat
When you open it, hexchat will ask you to input several usernames (in case your first choice is already taken):
Input a few usernames (or use the populated ones), select "Ubuntu Servers (freenode)" from the networks list and click "connect".
You're in! Now join the #ubuntu channel by typing:
and pressing enter. Ask your question! Be detailed and show your research. Don't be a help vampire.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
