    EVENT: June 9th Girls Inc Dual Boot PC Donation

    We may not be having another event any time soon so I hope you can show up for this. The Philly Stock Exchange has donated 10 nice Compaq Evo desktop PCs to Girls Inc in Philadelphia. We have teamed up with the Mt. Airy Computer Volunteer Group (CVG) to provide the recipients of the PCs with dual boot systems: Ubuntu 7.04 and Windows 2000 Professional. Up to 5 girls of ranging in ages 12-15 years old should be there. We will demonstrate the basic usage of the two different operating systems and the applications that are installed. Here's the rough time line for the day:
    1. 10:00 am --> Show up and setup
    2. 11:00 am --> Demonstrate Windows 2000 + applications
    3. 12:00 pm --> Lunch
    4. 12:30 pm --> Demonstrate Ubuntu + applications
    5. 01:30 pm --> Questions and Answers
    6. 02:00 pm --> Wrap it up and go home


    Again, this is a rough idea of how things will go. Please use the poll to let us know if you're coming. The Girls Inc. people are buying us lunch and need to know how many to feed. For directions and other info, please see this event on our LoCo team's google calendar.

    As usual, sorry for the short notice. The install-fest seems to have eclipsed this event.

    A friend of mine is having his Eagle Scout ceremony on Saturday. For those who will be there, good luck and have fun.

    Any idea what the parking situation is down there? Street parking? Garage?

    On a Saturday you may be able to get metered parking but garage is always available.

    fyi - for garage and parallel parking phobics or take the train

    there is a parking lot on 8th and market - open air - usually has space on the weekends - exit walking on 9th street and your only 5'ish blocks away. reasonable rates for cc.

    I'm going to do my best, I told my friend James I'd go bike shopping with him Saturday so I will be in Philly at least. Hopefully I'll be able to make it.

    Joe had photos up before I even got home:

    It went well considering the time restraints and other pressures. Thanks again to Kevin who pretty much did all the prep work for this!

    Hi Lyz. Thanks for recognizing that I should have pushed more tasks out to everyone else. I probably wouldn't have forgotten so many things. Oh yeah, I have pictures too. Is our the meetlinux site going be hosting pictures for our events? Presently I have no place to upload them unless I put them on tinypic, one at a time :/
