BALUG TOMRROW! Tu 2010-08-17 BALUG meeting; & other BALUG news

In this issue (details further below):
2010-08-17 Tu: TOMORROW! BALUG meeting
Linux/Ubuntu CDs
2010-08-21 Sa: Picn*x 19 - The Linux 19th Anniversary Picnic


Bay Area Linux User Group (BALUG) meeting
Tuesday 6:30 P.M. 2010-08-17

Please RSVP if you're planning to come (see further below).

For our 2010-08-17 BALUG meeting, at least presently we don't have
a specific speaker/presentation lined up for this meeting, but that
doesn't prevent us from having interesting and exciting meetings.
Sometimes we also manage to secure/confirm a speaker too late for us to
announce or fully publicise the speaker (that's happened at least twice
in the past five or so years - including last month's meeting).  Got
questions, answers, and/or opinions?  We typically have some expert(s)
and/or relative expert(s) present to cover LINUX and related topic
areas.  Want to hear some interesting discussions on LINUX and other
topics?  Show up at the meeting, and feel free to bring an agenda if
you wish.  Want to help ensure BALUG has speakers/presentations lined up
for future meetings?  Help refer speakers to us and/or volunteer to be
one of the speaker coordinators.  Good food, good people, and
interesting conversations to be had.

So, if you'd like to join us please RSVP to:

                    rsvp at balug.org

**Why RSVP??**

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help the
Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and they help ensure that we'll be
able to eat upstairs in the private banquet room.

          cash, we give you a gift of dinner ticket to join us for a yummy
          family-style Chinese dinner - tax and tip included (your gift also
          helps in our patronizing the restaurant venue and helping to
          defray BALUG costs such treating our speakers to dinner).


We'll also have various Linux/Ubuntu CDs available at the 2010-08-17
BALUG meeting (and likely also future meetings as long as our supply
lasts/continues), most notably presently including:
