LFNW Reminder:

FYI, SpringHill Suites by Marriott notified me that their

Promotional posters?

I'm not seeing any posters on the promotion site. Will there be any
available this year?

Ardour SIG or Meetup?

Is anyone coming to the fest who has experience using Ardour to record 
and mix down audio tracks. If so perhaps we could me up and compare 
notes. I'd like to learn more. I've read the manual but experience 
probably adds a lot more.

It has a special code for the event, but no special rate, oddly.
Currently, online gives you $139 but they told me $119 over the phone.

They cover Friday-Sunday. However, they are willing to extend the rate
until Monday if they can. Well, Tanya did. $124. Note they have
*wired* Internet— oooo! It's also a wee bit closer for what it's
worth.

Yeah, I think that would be a good idea. I tend to take the train if
I'm headed North or South. Unfortunately, the train departs right as
LFNW ends, which doesn't offer a lot of time to get one's affairs in
order. Thus, I need to wait until Monday. I think it might be wise to
base the event around plane, train, and bus schedules.

…or offer a party bus option ☺

Google Plus Event Page Banner


For the Google+ Event page for this years LinuxFest Northwest, I created a banner using your webpage's assets. I don't know who is in charge of the G+ page, but I thought I would help out. It an xcf file so you need gimp to open it, plus adjust it as you see fit.

I plan to be there this year, and I plan to use the event page's auto photo share as I take pictures with my phone. Well have a great day. ^^

LFNW Rate on Vacation Rentals

My wife and I have a couple of vacation rentals.  We are offering special rates for LFNW attendees.  High Speed
Internet, Roku TV's, Tivo, Comcast Cable and Internet, 802.11ac WiFi, and Nest Thermostats and Protects
in all of them.  (one is QUITE smart home-ified including an app controlled Garage Door and Front Door Lock  -
the "Owl's Perch").

https://www.airbnb.com/wishlists/41090520
(our places)

The EnviroVictorian and the Owl's Perch are open that weekend.  Both have 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths but have
comfy couches and have nice airbeds available.

15% discount for two nights, 25% for three nights.  (cleaning fee is our actual cost, can't discount that)

To claim the discount, just put #LFNW in the questions area of AirBNB. (or just reference LinuxFest)

Looking forward to bringing my 9yo son to LFNW again this year.  Last year he got exposed to robots, this year I
think he is interested in putting LInux or Android on his netbook...

Aaron

Are they already all gone? It seems that way, but even after calling
the hotel and leaving a message with the woman that handles group
rates, I couldn't get a clear answer (she never called back).
