I need your help please, as we've tried to verify your event posting for several months. Your organization and event posting needs to be verified as active and meeting on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
Until we hear back from you, we need to update your listing "*** DEFUNCT ***", and finally de-listed if we do not hear back from you soon by your posting a fresh, accurate listing for your organization for 2004 and beyond.
You can do so at: http://TechVenue.com/Post.htm
Thank you for your partnership in keeping your regional calendar as accurate and reliable as possible!

Event text: *** DEFUNCT *** Silicon Valley Linux User Group (SVLUG):
Installfest/Workshop, San Jose
Category: User Groups & SIGS
Details: The Silicon Valley Linux User Group (SVLUG):
LOCATION: Accent Technology 1880 Hartog Drive San Jose,
MAIN URL: http://www.svlug.org/
The event itself is usually unformatted - no pre-set
schedule of activities. When you arrive, check with the
Installfest personnel (not the bookshop employees - we
do not want to interfere with their work) on where to
set up your system. We try to keep people with new
installations together, and people with troubleshooting
issues together. Then go to work - our gurus will be
there to help. Feel free to ask any question.
There is no fixed schedule of acivities, though
occasionally we will have an expert come give a
mini-seminar on his or her area of expertise.
Due to the finite size of the work area, we ask that you
be prepared to share tables with other installers.
What To Do
Bring your machine, including monitor and anything else
it needs to work.
Bring a power strip. If we have a shortage of outlets,
people who bring power strips get priority at the wall
Whether you are doing a new Linux install or just an
upgrade, make a backup of your current system before you
come. If something goes wrong, we want to be sure that
you lose nothing critical.
If you are installing a new version of Linux, bring your
installation CD and documentation. (Some Intel-based
installation CDs may be there for you to use, but don't
depend absolutely on it.)
We try to have a 10baseT local-area network hooked up
among our machines, so bring your NICs!
If you have one, bring an Ethernet hub. Since attendance
is somewhat unpredictable, it doesn't hurt to have
several extras. (Be sure to ask before connecting it -
we want a topology where one hub is just for other hubs
to connect to, and ideally only one-hub-deep connections
from there. Some distant parts of the room may need an
extra hub for that area.)
Some regular participants have found it handy to make a
box of stuff they regularly bring to the Installfests.
What Not To Do
Don't count on others to have spare monitors, power
cables, keyboards, mice, non-Intel Linux distributions,
etc... although if you intended to bring them and
forgot, ask around before driving back home to get them.
Our hours of operation are 11am to 4pm. Don't arrive at
3:00 and expect to get much accomplished before we have
to shut down for the day.
The Silicon Valley Linux User Group (SVLUG) is the
oldest and one of the largest Linux user groups in the
world. It's a group of Linux hobbyists, professionals
and enthusiasts in the vicinity of San Jose, California,
which is also internationally known as Silicon Valley.
members share interests in Linux and free or low-cost
implementations of Unix, as well as other open sourceTM
software. The group was originally formed in 1988 as the
PC-Unix Special Interest Group of the Silicon Valley
Computer Society. SVLUG celebrated its 10th anniversary
at the March 4, 1998 meeting, where Linus Torvalds
addressed an audience of 500 people.
