Time is running out

I know, you have been meaning to send in your proposal for a talk at OLF, and it would be a dynamite talk. But you have to actually send in a proposal, and time is running out to do that. The Call for Talks ends on 7/8/13, which is one week from Monday. So you need to get it done today!

Twitter is likely built on FOSS components, but the service itself is not. There is a free service https://identi.ca/ that is based on code you can download.

Sadly, neither service has committed to running IPv6 yet.

The Free Desktop program of Austin Tx, Reglue, now has their own Google+ page. Check them out!
 
This is our new Google+ page.  We hope to keep everyone up to date on what we do and how we do it.  Hundreds of people in the Linux and Free Software Community have aided Reglue in getting computers into the Hands of Tomorrow.  Helping us build the Bruno Knaapen Technology Learning Center is just one of your achievements.

We couldn't have done it without you.

Great opportunity to help a great cause.
 
Ohio LinuxFest is looking for an OLF Institute Chair

Ohio LinuxFest is looking for someone who can take charge on this important part of the conference. OLF Institute is the Friday track of professional training that has proven to be very popular. We have gotten great response to this in the past, but making this happen requires someone who can be very organized and who can understand what the pros are looking for in training. You might be that person! If so, please write to us at team (at) ohiolinux (dot) org

Time is running out
Voting for the OLF 2013 Theme Ends Tomorrow

As you will recall, a few weeks back we asked you for your suggestions on possible themes for OLF 2013. We got a lot of good ideas, in fact every submission we got would have made a good conference. But sometimes you have to narrow things down and make a choice. So we have selected the top 3 ideas (and the decision of the judges is final) and are now asking you to vote on what you want OLF 2013 to focus on. The winning theme will guide us in looking for keynote speakers, so your vote can guide what you will participate in this coming September. So please cast your vote. The deadline for voting is 2/11/13, but don't put it off, go there and vote now. You'll be glad you did.

Choose the Theme for the Ohio LinuxFest 2013We asked you for ideas for themes, these are the best ones! Now help us decide which one to use. Please complete this by February 11, 2013.

Register now for Ohio LinuxFest 2013

Registration is open now, and we want to see lots of people sign up. If you are going to the OLF Institute for the awesome training, there is a fee. But regular attendees can can still come for free by re-registering on the web site. And then check out the hotel deals we have for attendees coming from out-of-town. Do it now, then sit back and enjoy our news posts while you anticipate being at OLF 2013.

My "Cheers" is now famous.
 
David Eads runs FreeGeek Chicago, 'an Apple Store for the rest of us'
by Mark Guarino of The Christian Science Monitor.
"We take the scary stuff out of computers. For those who fear computers, it's the best way to deal with fear," Eads says.

For all you Microsoft users of the mid-90's
 
OK! This is what I'm talking about! +Ken Hess is right! This is how MSFT should revise Windows 8! :-)

Starting this morning, I have become "a runner." 2 miles. It is what my heart can handle so I need to be proud of it.

Buzzy's is where you go when you have a car that you want to keep forever. It is the kind of shop that will remember you and your car year after year. I have taken my mom's cars to Buzzy too and received stellar treatment. This is the most honest shop in the greater Pittsburgh area. If you work "at the lab" it is super convienent.

Website is a link farm. At least their phone has an answering machine. Store hours M - 9-5. Saturday 9-2. Maybe they are a great place but their hours don't work for me.

Reasonable prices and quality work. I used them for a ring sizing and engraving. Don't send your work out of town when you can get it fast, local, and perfect. tip: if you are there after 5pm, just ring the doorbell.

This is my favorite coffee shop in all of Chicagoland. The drink menu is quite extensive and the Batistas are all nice, sharp, and fast. They also stock yummy vegan and gluten free bakery items. If that doesn't convince you, I urge you to visit to play a round on their original Nintendo console. The experience is complete as you gimmy the cartridge to get it to go.

I called them to see what they carry. No dishwashers. They said that they only stock used and small appliances.

No baked potatoes available. Only one restroom which always had a line. Had to wait 5 minutes before ketchup was refilled. Had to wait even longer to be able to use the trash can. Over 9 bucks and one hour visit for a burger and a shake, please.

There is a great variety of activities and restaurants under one roof. There are lots of options for any budget. The ice cream stores inside are a bit pricey but there is always McD's. There are a few carnival rides indoors and outdoors, however, everyone should do the Ferris Wheel at least once. The reason why I do not rate this as an excellent is that the indoor bathrooms can get very crowded.
