Volunteer with LibreOffice at LinuxFest NW! (Free T-shirt)

Hi Seattle,

WHAT:
In just a couple weeks, LibreOffice will be returning in style for
another LinuxFest NW (http://linuxfestnorthwest.org/) in Bellingham,
WA. We're hoping to recruit a few more friendly people to help staff our booth!

WHEN:
Sat, Apr 25th, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Sun, Apr 26th, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

SKILLS:
Experience with LibreOffice and other FOSS products like Ubuntu is a
plus, but a helpful and positive attitude is much more important.

In addition to talking about LibreOffice, we'll be showing-off our
printed user manuals, demoing LibreOffice to interested users, and
handing out stickers.

Did you know that LibreOffice runs on Android? We currently have a
LibreOffice Viewer, and are currently adding editing capabilities.

DURATION:
We're hoping for people to volunteer at least a couple hours of time
at the booth over the 2 days

PERKS:
As a member of the booth team you'll get an Official LibreOffice T-shirt.

CONCLUSION:

LinuxFest

Hey all,

Looking to go to LFNW. Need a place to stay 25-26. Probably get a
hotel, anyway don't have a car so it looks like taxi cab or car pool
for me. Anyone looking to share cost of room or gas?

USB iso downoads

Hey So I just wanted to verify if I did the setup I need to install
from USB bootable. I have Parabola Linux iso which I dd onto my USB.
The question is whether it is good because I tried to boot from it and
nothing. Do I need to make the iso image executable permissions since
I believe it is by default read/write access. But Looking at
permissions it says njm is the owner, and I don't see how at a
hardware level at installation it should be a problem. The other
problem I have is getting it installed on my Desktop as it has a buggy
BIOS, where I can't access the BIOS from POST.

Linux Tutorium room at LFNW


Bill of LFNW has asked GSLUG for help. LFNW has a "Linux Tutorium"
room, and they need Linux-savvyy volunteers to spend some time in this
room, and offer your assistance helping newbies as they test drive
various Linux distro's, experience installs, play with LibreOffice,
etc. Apparently LFNW has some BTC volunteer students to help, but
they're just learning Linux themselves. If you're going to LFNW,
please try to help staff that room.

Thanks,
Lee

how do i get my VBC code included in the linux listings?

=====
Organization: Thought Unlimited.  Public service Unix since 1986.
Of_Interest: With 28 years  of service  to the  Unix  community.

	do any of you know how to get code included in the Linux
	listings?  I'm getting too long in the tooth to do much more
	coding.  "VBC" ["voice by computer"] is for the speech impaired
	who know how to type and use the mouse.  {i think that is most
	people under 75 nowadays.}  VBC  works.  I've got one last 
	subsection that may (or may not) be useful.

	If nobody is interested, no problem.  

	gary

	PS:  it's gtk-2.0 right now.

Seattle Times has a new Website


http://seattletimes.com
 
The Seattle Times is one of the few remaining independently owned Newspapers in the USA, owned by the  Blethen family
http://kuow.org/post/frank-blethen-seattle-times-accidental-publisher
 
It contains regional (Pacific Northwest) and USA national news. 
 
I work there.  Other than being overworked,  it is an awesome place.  (APPLY FOR THE SENIOR LINUX SYS ADMIN JOB THERE I NEED GOOD HELP)
 
Please check out our new website (link above) and mobile apps.
If you like them please pass on the information.
If there is something you think can be improved, let us know.
If you have an idea for it also let us know.
 
The Tech section is hidden behind the Business subheader  (I've already complained).  If you agree, please let them know.
 
We are a smaller company than you would imagine by seeing our Newspaper or our Website and every comment gets read and intelligent arguments get read and get attention.
 
thanks,
Meryll Larkin
