post calls for volunteers.
- Raffle — We gave away three books from
O'Reilly: Being Geek, Cooking for Geeks and
Autotools, and a 4GB USB flash drive from Edge Tech Corp.
- Financial Report —
$25.00 voluntary dues were collected tonight.
Our previous treasurer, Henry House, received our letter regarding
our deadline to receive LUGOD's missing financial paperwork.
He responded, but has yet to get the paperwork to us (our deadline
for giving up was today's meeting). At this point, we will move forward
under the assumption that the paperwork is lost forever. LUGOD's officers
will hold an officer meeting soon to discuss the next steps.
- Becoming a UC Davis "Campus Affiliate Group" —
- Explorit membership —
LUGOD has donated $75 to Explorit. (They received it and give their thanks.)
- Joe Eager of the Blender "bmesh" project was scheduled to speak about
"Overcoming repeated failure and attaining success in an open source project"
but failed to make it to tonight's meeting.
In lieu of that, we opened the floor for discussions. Charley Shattuck talked about
Color Forth and Greenarrays.com, and Brian Lavender demonstrated
Lazarus, an IDE and RAD tool for developing object-oriented Pascal
