2010.06.21 Meeting Notes
Explorit Science Center
- Installfests —
Thanks to new LUGOD memebr Dan Fiske, the last LUGOD
Linux Installfest was held earlier this month (Saturday,
June 12th) at the N Street Cohousing commonhouse in Davis.
Richard Harke reported that approximately 5 systems were
brought, and 8-12 people were in attendance. Parking was
a little difficult, but network speed at the facility
was great (15Mb). Grant Bowman from the Ubuntu
California LoCo (Local Community) team was there, as was
someone who had a system full of distro ISOs, which he
was able to burn to disc on demand. IF coordinator
Alex Mandel was not in attendance, but between photos
of the event, and Richard and Anthony Serna's comments,
it's likely that we'll try to hold IFs there again.
The next IF is scheduled at this point.
