This weekend I learned how to repair an air-conditioner. Also spent some qtime on BALUG related matters. The next Bay Area Linux Users Group meeting is Tuesday the 21st. Peter Braam is speaking - and we expect it to be a very interesting evening. I have asked the good folks at IDG for some guest passes (and other door prize swag) for the upcoming Linuxworld Conference and Expo here in San Francisco. (Aug 26th through the 30th) If you work for a Linux company - and want to give stuff away at BALUG just send me a note, or contact Dave Sifry (firstname.lastname@example.org). In any event- if you are in San Francisco, and want to enjoy a great feed amongst others of our kind... Just show up at 731 Grant St. (Four Seas Restaurant) at 7:00 PM, dinner is $10.00 per person and the meeting is always FREE!
