Meeting last night

Posted in

Had a good meeting last night, despite a rather small turnout (the important people were there hehe). We discussed the issues du jour, trashed certain distros, got griped at about some things, and praised for others.

I'd like to see a bigger turnout next time, we will see what has to be done to make this so.

Montreal LUGs... and such.

Just stopped by to check the date for the next meetup since it's been ages since I attended a local LUG meeting of any sort, probably 5 years or so since I attended regularly, probably more.

Nice to see Drupal on the site. I went to a couple of days of DrupalCon2005 in Portland and met a bunch of the developers there.

What is the world coming to?

Ok ok, so let's start from the beginning, shall we?

Here I am, happily hacking away at some packages, can't remember which and it doesn't matter.
As usual I had my earphones on to block the eternal chatter in the office and had my Last.FM client tuned to "My Neighbors" station.

And then it happened, Fergie came on, obscenely chanting about her "humps", which led to several things happening at once.

1. I snorted coffee all over my keyboard.

Playing with the OLPC OS

Posted in

I just got a qemu image of the OLPC (one laptop per child) OS and played with it for a few minutes. It's really different from anything I've ever seen before, the whole gui is really based around sharing and being able to communicate with other friends on the mesh wifi network that gets created when you put a bunch of these boxes next to each other (I've yet to use it, but it's there). The taskbar is right in the middle of the screen which forms a circle of open applications centered around a little stick figure which I'm assuming represents you.

Free Software Week is looking for volunteers

Only 194 days to go until Software Freedom Day, which happens to kick off the Québec Free Software Week this year :)

We're looking for people to help with the website, promotion, writing, translation, etc. Maybe you have an idea for a large event and 6 months will be just enough time to make it happen? I hope the new website can help you realize your goals to promote Free Software and Open Source.

So mark your calendars and keep a few days open betwen the 15th and 23rd of September 2007 for the SQIL.

PCLinux OS - Look no further.

Welcome to my first installment about PC Linux OS. I just starting using this distro since about 2 weeks now after choosing it over Kubuntu 6.10 and Fedora Core 6. Im also in the process of moving over to Linux from Microsoft Windows XP, so for the time being im running both my Laptop and Desktop in dual boot.

Hi, folks!

I'm Angie Byron, aka 'webchick' ... I work on the Drupal project all day, all night, and every time in between. ;) So far I've only made it to one MLUG meeting because of my crazy work/travel schedule. :( But hope to leave my house for once and see you all again next meeting! Thanks to Jeremy for introducing me to the group, and also for building this site so we can all talk. :) And thanks to Robin for scheduling the next meeting at a time when I can hopefully make it!
