One again, 6:00 in Walnut Creek. This email has more than I expected.
We look forward to talking with you on the list or in person or on
this list. The art and wine festival going on hopefully won't distract
too much, or distract us all in a pleasant way.  A guest author will
be attending this evening http://twitter.com/writernicholas

An event I have been working for over a month already to organize
takes place next month.  The One Laptop per Child (OLPC) San Francisco
Community Summit 2010 - http://olpcsf.org/CommunitySummit2010/  takes
place October 21, 2010 - Sun Oct 23rd. If anyone is interested in
helping either before or during the event, please let me know. The
little green laptop I carry sometimes is a sample. I have a 1.0
version and a 1.5 version if anyone would like to see them at a
dvlug.org meeting sometime.  http://www.laptop.org  Our community
hopes that the Give 1 Get 1 program will be revived for Christmas in

Some Future Linux Releases on the Horizon:

10.10.10 - Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat

11.02.10 - Fedora 14 Laughlin -

03.10.11 - openSUSE 11.4 - http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Roadmap

unknown - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 (Beta 2 is out already) -

It's near the end of the month so there aren't as many events next
week as usual.  As most of you know by now, www.dvlug.org meets every
Friday from 6:00 PM regardless of the reminder emails.
