[vox] LTSP demo in Oakland next week...

If anyone is interested, I'll be setting up an LTSP server and
workstations in Oakland next week on the 12th for Penguin Day there. 
It's part of a push they are doing to showcase computer recycling, and
I'm there since we use refurbished computers as clients (and as
servers as well).

Information on the day is below.  Since I'm not sponsoring the event,
hope it's kosher to post about it.

******What is Penguin Day San Francisco/Bay Area?****** 

Penguin Day brings together nonprofit tech staff, eRiders, tech
providers, consultants, and open source software developers for a day
of learning and conversation.

Together, we'll demystify open source for nonprofits, frankly address
the challenges of developing open source tools, and learn about
specific promising open source applications for nonprofits.

****What will you take away from Penguin Day?******

Area features a packed agenda of interactive workshops, round tables,

Introduction to Free and Open Source Software for Nonprofits 
Local resources and who's-who in the Bay Area Free/Open Source community 
Helping techies and non-techies communicate and cooperate
