As most of you are probably aware I was co-opted into organising this years
ILUG stand at e-Xpo. As Donncha mentioned last year, it's not an easy job,
and I couldn't have done it without the help and support of the following
(In no particular order)
* Mark Egan and team at Scope Communications who generously donated the
* David Hamilton of HP and Andrew Kemmy of B.I.C. Systems who arranged for
the loan of hardware for us to play with
* David Owens of RedHat Ireland who donated Scooters and plenty of Boxed
Sets of RedHat 7.0 (Deluxe and Professional) which are currently being
enjoyed by their winners
* Mike Bennett of Eolach who supplied us with a serious number of VA Linux
T-shirts (Linux, The difference between Trust and AntiTrust)
* Ken Guest, Colin Whittaker, and Mark Kilmartin who helped out on the stand
for the entire duration of the show, tirelessly answering any and every
question that came their way.
* Colm Buckley for giving his talk on linux (sorry I missed it, but I'm told
it was one of the more popular talks of the show)
* Niall O Broin, Liam Bedford, Cormac McClean, Peter Flynn (and anyone who's
names I've forgotton) who jumped in to help when they got time, and let us
see some of the show
* Verity Systems (vendors of CD Duplication equipment) come in for special
mention, as they saved our skins by duplicating large numbers of RedHat 7.1
CDs which were eagerly snapped up. Thanks !
* Dale McWilliams of Anything-Irish.com who has given the ILUG an external
SCSI CDRW on indefinate loan (Not directly related to the show, but anyway
I'd also like to thank those who tried to get us toys to play with, and
those who have already offered support for next year's e-Xpo (or LinuxWorld
2001) in the form of physical presence, promised space donation etc.
And last but not least, to our stand visitors, Thank-you. Without you we
might not have been the most popular stand at the exhibition.
