LUGOD is holding an Installfest this weekend, and a general meeting
next Monday:


Installfest
-----------
When:
  Saturday, February 18, 2006
  10:00am - 6:00pm

Where:
  John D. Kemper Hall of Engineering
  Room 1131
  1228 Bainer Hall Drive
  UC Davis
  Davis, California

What:
  Linux is a completely free, 'open source' operating system that can run
  on a wide variety of computer hardware.  It can act as a web-, file-,
  print- or game-server, run in a 'cluster' of computers to do 3D rendering
  or other intense math, or sit under your TV and record your favorite shows
  for later viewing.  Many people use it as an inexpensive, stable,
  virus- and spyware-free alternative to commercial software, such as
  Microsoft Windows.  It can be installed over, or alongside, Windows or
  Mac OS X.

  Members of the community are invited to bring their computers and laptops
  to this informal workshop, and volunteers from LUGOD will help you install
  and configure Linux... for FREE!

How:
  If you wish to bring in your PC, you must RSVP beforehand to reserve a
  space.  The RSVP form, and lots of useful information about Linux and
  Installfests, and how to prepare for the event, are accessible on the
  web at:

  "The 'Drupal' Content Management System"
  Steven Peck

    Drupal (http://www.drupal.org/) is an Open Source
    content management system (CMS) that runs on top of other common
    Open Source software: Linux or BSD operating systems,
    the Apache webserver, the PHP scripting language, and
    MySQL or PostgreSQL databases.

    Drupal can support a variety of websites, ranging from personal
    web diaries ("blogs") to large community-driven website.
