2011.06.20 Meeting Notes


Wickson Hall, Room 1017, UC Davis

Project Reports

  • Installfests — The last IF was held on Saturday at N Street Cohousing. Thanks to Alex Mandel for running the IF, and Dan Fiske for providing the venue. 3-4 people RSVP'd. One had a server, but decided to leave it at home. Another brought a server that the IF volunteers decided was not worth working on; cheaper to replace with a more modern system. Mostly people worked on their own stuff, and didn't need help. Around 10 on-lookers came to watch.
  • Hands-On Demo — None scheduled. The next will probably be in September, for this year's Software Freedom Day. We should sign up soon, so we can receive some free discs and other goodies.

  • Becoming a UC Davis "Campus Affiliate Group" — Alex Mandel reminds us it will cost $30/year to be an affiliate group, and that LUGOD members Bill Broadley and Scott Miller, who work at UC Davis, have offered to be our liasons.
