[vox] [Fwd]: LinuxPicnic reminder from Heather

Heather, done! :)


----- Forwarded message from Heather Stern <star@starshine.org> -----

Hey Bill,

I was wondering if you could post the following to LUGOD's list for me 
and/or announce it at your group social on Tuesday?  It's ok for folks
to email me too, I'm just gonna be responding much faster to phone since
I've $paidstuf and of of work all of Thurs for LWE so between that and
the things I'm committed toward for the Picnix I'll be kinda interrupt
driven much of the week.

Oh yeah, and I suppose they can chat me up Thursday if they see me in the 
exhibs hall too.

  Hey everyone, the LinuxPicnic will be coming up this month. Uh, this 
  *week*, by the time you read this.

  Date:   11 August 2007  (the Saturday after LinuxWorld Expo up in SF)

  Where:  Sunnyvale Baylands (same as last year)
      Really Where:  Heading N on Lawrence, just after you get past
                     the highway entrance, the park's on the right.
                     Inside the gate, you'll want to turn to the right
                     and follow things around to the "Indian Grass Circle"
                     side of the park.  If you arrive late expect hectic

  What:   Picnic!    :D  There will be grillables - if you're really picky,
                     bring your own, e.g. allergic to BBQ sauce, etc.  If
                     you're planning to share, keep your ingredient lists
                     handy so allergy type folks can RTFM to their pleasure.

                     Picnic toys.  Big grassy area to run around in.
                     Food.  Decent water.  Other drinkables.

  Who: open sourcerors of all shape and variety.  Mostly bilateral bipeds.
       Mostly linux folk (but Haiku-OS and other projects are expecting to
       show up too).  You :)

       RSVP URL - http://www.linuxpicnic.org/guests/rsvp.pl

  Special notes:     If you bring tarpstands, no sharp objects, no stakes.
                     The Baylands doesn't want metal left behind to bother
                     the grass after we're gone, and they have a policy
                     against injuring the local plants.

                     There's lots of seating and a few pavilions but it's
                     never enough;  if you *neeeeed* seating, bring a comfy
                     folding chair - or 3.

  Expected coolness: Internet (via some very strange forms of Wifi).
                     Probably a mini installfest (hint: bring discs - the
                     link almost certainly cannot handle 400 people sucking
                     down Knoppix/Mepis/Fedora/Ubuntu/etc. all at once).

  Expected not-so-coolness: sunburn.  Much ouchy bad sunburn.  Bring sunblock.

                     Repeat: if you don't have the ability to restore your
                     skin from a morning backup - bring sunblock!

                     If you and lobsters share colors in common, bring
                     Sunblock 2000 in designer shades.  And wear your
                     designer shades.

  Duncan MacKinnon volunteered a few months back to coordinate this picnic.
  He's been very back to basics about it and tried to make it to a bunch of 
  user groups, in person.  I don't know if he made it to yours.  I've got a 
  bunch of his raw notes and plans on making things happen.  

  If any among you want to help out with anything specific (rather than
  merely show up when you want and help out if you like) then please
  feel free to mention how you can help in the text comment field for
  your RSVP.  Or phone me.

See ya then, then!

The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at
least until we've finished building it.
