as I said previously, ILUG will have a small stand this year at the ICT
Expo where you can all come along, meet up, peruse the show (including
the OpenIreland talks
and perhaps make a donation to ILUG?
On the stand we will have a few machines demonstrating remote desktops
in a similar fashion to what is used in one of our Third Level colleges
where it was initially implemented simply as a solution to poor webmail
solutions. We will also be reminding people about the fact there is an
active FOSS community in Ireland by doing a little cross promotion of
the upcoming Akademy conference in Trinity.
We will also have a wide range of iso images available for people to
burn on the stand along with some Ubuntu CD's for the less particular or
more impatient masses. This will include a good few DVD iso images
(such as KNOPPIX, CentOS and Debian). Anyone coming along who wants to
make a simple donation could drop us some discs, cd's or dvd's. Any
surplus will be available for future ILUG events. If you want to bring
us along some pre-burnt discs of your favourite distro go right ahead.
After wrapping up the show on Friday I'm proposing a POTD in Pembroke
Cricket Club just across the Dart-Line from the RDS:
On this map, you can see the RDS on the left and Pembroke on the
right. From the RDS head south/east along Merrion Road until
Sandymount Avenue, cross the dart line (Sandymount Station is here) and
take the first right on to Wilfield Road, at the end of which is a gate
into the grounds. If you are driving (or coming from Synday Parade
dart station) the entrance to the grounds is on Park Avenue (the other
side of the ground) beside St Johns. To any rugby players the grounds
are shared with Monkstown Rugby club and to anyone who was there in the
past the bar was renovated last season :-) For an added bonus, if the
weather allows it, you should be able to enjoy the background of our
Womens 1st XI playing their first friendly of the season. Of course
the real highlight is the extra change you will get at the bar compared
to the local pubs.
See you all somewhere along the way I hope?
