2003.03.17 Meeting Notes


Project Reports

  • Demo - Our last demo was March 15th at the Davis Food Co-Op. We had a fairly good turn out. Mike rsync'd LUGOD's website onto the demo machine, and we got Apache, PHP and some virtual domains set up so that our website can be shown off live, but without Internet access! A lot of questions from passers-by involved Linux alternatives to Microsoft Office. The next demo isn't scheduled yet.

  • Installfests - The last Installfest was Sunday, March 16th. Less than 10 machines were brought, probably due to finals coming up! $30 were donated during the IF. The next IF date lands on Easter, so we will either skip April, or change the date of the IF.

  • LERT - No activity.

  • Library - A Debian CD set was loaned out, and returned. A Zope book was loaned out, and also returned.

Other Business

  • Sacramento Writers Conference - A technical writers conference which SacLUG may be attending. LUGOD is looking into whether we can attend as well, to help SacLUG out. Check 'vox-outreach' mailing list for more.

  • Government Technology Conference - A large conference in Sacramento. Unfortunately, the price to attend (for non-profits!) is $1000. We may be able to tag along with another organization, but this means space will be small, and preparation time will be short. Check 'vox-outreach' for more.

  • California 4-H Leadership Conference - LUGOD is planning to attend the 4-H conference in August, like we did last year. If you're interested in helping out, contact Bill Kendrick or post to 'vox-outreach'.

  • Whole Earth Festival - WEF takes place again this May. We're going to look into whether we can attend again, as last year's was quite successful!

  • Picnic Day - LUGOD has always been interested in attending UC Davis' Picnic Day, but since we're not affiliated with UCD, we cannot. Kevin Murakoshi from the Computer Science Club at UC Davis said we may be able to attend by helping the CS club's booth.

  • vox-jobs Mailing List - LUGOD has created another new discussion mailing list: "vox-jobs". Sign up if you're looking for a job, or are interested in discussing job-hunting skills. Linux-oriented jobs will most likely get posted there from now on, as well.

  • Financial Report - $??.?? in voluntary dues were collected. We also were recently give a $25 donation as thanks for a set of Debian CDs.


  • Ronald Krause and Charles Samuels, two KDE developers, came to talk about the K Desktop Environment. They talked about KDevelop and the upcoming new version of KDevelop, Cervisia, Kparts, DCOP, QtDesigner, and more!
