This years ICT Expo takes place Wednesday/Thursday 13th/14th April in the RDS Main Hall. This years ILUG@Expo will feature the Linux.ie stand (look for Tux the penguin in the yellow section of the floorplan) aswell as the Open Expo conference which we are co-hosting with OpenIreland.
We're looking forward to seeing you all there. Don't forget to come by the stand to see if you can get a copy of the newly released Ubuntu Linux on cd so you can try out the new #1 Linux distribution on distrowatch.

The BLG is one of the more popular areas of our site and is need of some continuous tender loving care. Some pages could be improved while others simply need updating to the latest and greatest the Linux world has to offer.
So have a look and see if you can write a missing page or update an existing one and submit your updates as mentioned on the BLG and to me, email@example.com (and you can CC to firstname.lastname@example.org for a bit of distributed proof reading if you're brave).

All changes are now listed in a Changelog - some will be evident to everybody and others only if you have the relevant access rights.
In short, I've put more work into the News Postings archive and search engine, along with localisation, vCards and a bit more.

This year yet again we are involved with the
ICT EXPO. We are looking for people to help out on the stand. The mailing list has been set up for the event and can be found here.
This rather low volume list will be the place where information will be passed between the people helping out on the stand. This year we have will have several speakers from our membership. In the main they will be doing case studies about various open source programs and the benefits these programs bring to various organisations. The list of speakers is on the ICT Expo site.
