Presentation by Bill Ward: "Drawing with OpenOffice.org"

Most Linux users know that the OpenOffice.org productivity suite can
be used as a substitute for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. But
there is a part of OpenOffice that many people underuse, which doesn't
exist in Microsoft Office at all: Draw. Bill will go through this
powerful utility's main features, showing how it can be used to create
flyers and brochures.

Planning & Discussion for LinuxWorld and Linux Picnic

The LinuxWorld Expo and Linux Picnic will be here in a few weeks, and
we need to discuss PenLUG's participation.

For LinuxWorld (at the Moscone Center in San Francisco) we will be
participating in a "LUG Booth" along with other bay area user
groups. We need volunteers to staff that booth. Also, we have free
passes available for the exhibits hall from Prentice-Hall publishers.

The annual Linux Picnic is also coming up. Be sure to RSVP for your
free food. It will be a lot of fun as it is every year.

Members' Minutes

Members will have an opportunity to take a few minutes to...

    * Describe their latest Linux discovery
    * Ask questions and get help from other members
    * Discuss Linux projects

You can just stand up and talk, or give a short demo or presentation.
If you need audio/visual support for your Members' Minute, please
contact Bill in advance to arrange for your needs.

Although it is NOT required, we like to have an idea of how many
people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp@penlug.org if you
are planning to attend.
