God, it's 0330 and I'm still up. Well, I just finished getting "The Beautiful Gift of Linux" online. I'm tired, and I'm off to sleep. Hope somebody reads this and at least gets a laugh out of it.

Much later... I went to Corvallis and dinked around with my friend, Kass, and the Mid-Willamette LUG. They're having a booth at the County Fair, and I was able to share some "Lessons Learned" from last year's Oregon Country Fair

I also passed around some of the "Beautiful Gift of Linux" tracts, to much amusement, but still there was a point to it all, because they have contact info for the LUG, so if you put them in a CD that you then hand out for free, you also gave them a way to get help.

I remember this one guy at the Country Fair who came all the way from Albany. He was in the process of downloading the RH6.1 iso on his dialup modem. We were giving out RH CD's, and I handed him a RH6.2 for free. He just about broke down and cried in front of me... talk about gratitude.

I tried not to be too disruptive to the Corvallis guys, but sometimes I can't help but interject funny, off-the-wall comments at opportune times.

However, I did meet several people that I know from email only, so that's really sweet, and I hooked them up with our swag contact, sethcohn
