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! 
Here you can submit a proposal for a talk at the Ohio LinuxFest 2013. Talks are 50 minutes, generally 40 minutes with 10 minutes for questions. We seek talks in a huge variety of subjects, for people who range from experts to those seeking to learn what Free and Open Source Software is.

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.

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.

My "Cheers" is now famous.
 
David Eads runs FreeGeek Chicago, 'an Apple Store for the rest of us'

"We take the scary stuff out of computers. For those who fear computers, it's the best way to deal with fear," Eads says.

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.
Drive
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.

The children's library is a good size with a play area. Thank goodness that there is a changing table in the ladies room. I might reconsider my star rating after I have a good chance to check out the adult racks. Admittedly, I have not yet. While the building has an elevator, I have not been upstairs to browse since I fear that it might be tight to navigate. The space is obviously a historic beauty and they did a good job trying to make it accessible so I can't be too critical of the place. It closes at 6 Tuesdays and Thursday which seems early to me. Other patrons on Monday night agree as the place is jumping until 8pm.

They are closed. Hyde Park Herald reported on it. Sadly, they could not sell enough shrimp to make rent. The other location will not deliver to Hyde Park. What a loss.

I went in to this location on a Saturday at 2pm. The line was never longer than 3 people deep, as I observed as I prepared my package. They close sharply at 2:30pm, so get yourself through the door before then. Shipping supplies were somewhat out of sorts but at least the inventory was ample. This location would be more useful if it had a kiosk to weigh and buy postage, but that doesn't seem to exist in the South Side. Based on my one visit, they get 3 stars, as I found them friendlier and more efficient than 55th St PO.

The store itself is clean, organized, and well stocked. Unfortunately, there is no parking lot security. When coming and going from the store, you will experience multiple solitation requests. It is a shame because the South Side needs businesses like this but I won't be back. I go to the South Loop store on near Roosevelt where they have a gratis, secured, well-lit parking garage.

simply the best wonton soup. ever. exceeds anything that you will find in Chinatown. Large shrimp paired with kale. one star is held back from this place because panhandling is an issue in this plaza. therefore, I always do delivery.

This is a nonprofit store dedicated to organic produce and ethically-raised meat and dairy. I would shop here all of the time if they had parking, or even a place to pull over to load for phoned in orders. Perhaps the delivery service that they have road mapped will help. Since it is right down the street from me, I stop by and the staff is always pretty friendly. Nobody else, except maybe Walgreens, is open late, so I really want to see them do well.

I work in this building. This is why I am apalled that the management yelled at me because I sat in the outdoor patio while waiting for friends to join me. Yes, I bought food and drink and the total was over $7 for a snack. No, it really was not that busy. This place is too pricey and prentious. Even though I am a "captive audience," especially with the long winter ahead, we won't be back.
