Table at CfS DiscoTech

Does GSLUG want to have a table at this Open Data event: http://codeforseattle.org/discotech/?

The format will be somewhat similar to a Mini Maker Faire. You would have a table where you can show off your project and attendees can learn more about what you do.

how do i get these DICT files into "goldendict"?

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

	guys,

	need help getting these files:

170088 -rw-rw-r--. 1 kline 9164137 May  7 17:51 oed.dict.dz
24492 -rw-rw-r--. 1 kline  15074411 May  7 17:51 oed.index
4 -rw-rw-r--. 1 kline       923 May  7 17:03 README.txt

	into the "goldendict" that I rely on mostly to look up words.
	the README.txt suggests this but nothing seems to work.  A 
	fellow retired hacker brought these over on disc month back,
	but he had forgotten how too.   

	any help from this list?

	gary

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:
If hanging out at a booth and telling everyone about the latest news
about LibreOffice and Free Software sounds like your idea of a good
time, then please ping me back. We'd love to have you on board!

Best,
--R

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.
