BALUG TOMRROW! Tu 2010-10-19 BALUG meeting; & other BALUG news

In this issue (details further below):
2010-10-19 Tu: TOMORROW! BALUG meeting
Linux Lawyers (& software for Laywers)
Linux/Ubuntu CDs


Bay Area Linux User Group (BALUG) meeting
Tuesday 6:30 P.M. 2010-10-19

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

For our 2010-10-19 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).  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
BALUG and the Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and meeting, and with
sufficient attendance, they also help ensure that we'll be able to eat
upstairs in the private banquet room.

Linux Lawyers (& software for Laywers)

 From Martyn Collins talk/presentation at BALUG last month on 2010-09-21,
he also provided BALUG with "a list of the applications I find essential
in making my solo practice viable":


We'll also have various Linux/Ubuntu CDs available at the 2010-10-19
BALUG meeting (and likely also future meetings as long as our supply
lasts/continues), most notably presently including:
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) Desktop CD PC (Intel x86) i386
(also at least some Fedora, Knoppix, and other Ubuntu variants presently)
Thanks to Grant Bowman and the Ubuntu California Team for getting CDs to


Feedback on our publicity/announcements (e.g. contacts or lists where we
should get our information out that we're not presently reaching, or
things we should do differently): publicity-feedback at balug.org
