Posted By Ken Guest - 22:29, 3 March 2008
In the best known tradition of ILUG there will be an informal gathering of minds (drinking session) at the Longstone Pub on March 27th.
To make things interesting Paul O'Malley will buy a drink for the person with the most unusual penguin present!
As always, all are very welcome.
Linux Counter Project
Posted By Ken Guest - 10:35, 14 December 2007
The Linux Counter project has been going for some time now and is an attempt to determine how many people are using Linux worldwide.
It is also used to estimate how many machines Linux is installed on.
I received an email this morning asking me to update my details, this is not uncommon as I had not logged in for quite some time, and felt compelled to blog about it to remind others who might want to ’stand up and be counted’.
The Irish Linux Counter Homepage details how best to register yourself if you are based in Ireland
So go on, what are you waiting for?
Free maps! Talk on Thursday, followed by mapping weekend
Posted By Ken Guest - 18:19, 13 November 2007

Steve Coast will be giving a talk about OpenStreetMap in the HEAnet offices, in the IFSC, Dublin on Thursday the 22nd of November at 7pm.
All are welcome.
OpenStreetMap is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways. Steve Coast, founder of OpenStreetMap, explains.
Steve will also be bringing over OpenStreetMap's loaner GPS units so we can hold a mapping weekend Sat 24th - Sun 25th, at the ICS offices, Mount Street Crescent in Dublin,, starting at 11am each day, and get any new converts up to speed as soon as possible after his talk.
Please mail Gareth Eason (chairman -at- linux.ie) if you hope to attend either event, to give us some idea of numbers to plan for and for security on the door.
