Subject: [ILUG-SOCIAL] Microsoft Ruling and Gnome 2.6 release,
how about a POTD?
Posting to the social list first, I'll bring this onto the main list
later if necessary.
The release of Gnome 2.6 is scheduled for March 24th which if I'm not
mistaken is next Wednesday and they are very likely to meet that schedule.
There are release parties being held in various places:

listed for Ireland.
I imagine more than half of ILUG dont use Gnome but I'm hoping they will
still take it as an excuse to go out for the evening. There are other
reasons to go out next Wednesday, the ruling against Microsoft is due
March 24th and even if it doesn't go far enough for many peoples liking it
will certainly give ILUG something to talk about.
(Anychance of an ILUG press release for next Wednesday that we can
spoonfeed to the journalists and TV people who will be looking for
There is always the question of where to have the POTD*.
I like Messrs Maguires and it is has been a favourite of ILUG for a long
time but would the Porter House be suitable?
(The Porter House
currently having an Irish Beer and Whiskey festival but unfortunately that
ends on the 20th).
So who else is on for a POTD?!
* POTD stands for Pint of the Day, because someone new always asks.
