help ensure that we're able to eat upstairs in the private banquet room.

LinuxWorld[5], BALUG & SF-LUG, Installfest, etc.

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo[5] is coming soon to San Francisco.

BALUG, SF-LUG[6], and some additional [L]UGs will be sharing a
combined/shared [L]UG "booth" at LinuxWorld Conference & Expo,
so ... come by, say "hi", tell folks to come check us out.
To volunteer to help out / coordinate etc. ... take a look
at the BALUG "talk"[7] list or archive thereof - there should be
some significant updates on that within the week.

Installfest for Schools[8]
Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC)[9] will supply hardware
for massive Installfest for Schools, to donate open source (Ubuntu[10])
computers to schools in need.  The event is organized by Untangle[11]
and GES[12].  LinuxWorld attendees are encouraged to join the
installfest by installing Ubuntu, hacking older hardware, or donating
unwanted computers.  For more information see:
