Ok, you want some words on the clug site... well ok.

 

 I just downloaded the "easy peasey" Linux distro for my eeepc and possibly
an older hp 533 MHz laptop. It looks real nice on the live cd version. Any
questions, comments or snyde remarks!!!

 

 I read the reviews on this distro and all looks fine. Any pointers or
suggestions on how to load in to the computer to not wreck the solid state
memory??  Ie no swap, ext 2 instead of ext 3 and any other pointers. 

 

 Most likely I will do this over the weekend.

 

Thanx Guys & Gals.

 

Dan Mueller

The two main projects I am working on are 64Studio and Ubuntu Studio.
These are multimedia production Linux distributions.  I will be
demonstrating 64Studio on Saturday along with some of the gear (mmm,
toys) that I have.

I am also working on Voyage Linux, a distro that is aimed at embedded
and SBC machines.  It is based on Debian and is designed to run off of
Compact Flash cards.  I use it for building my own routers and firewalls.

It's only a design concept at the moment, but this looks like cool tech...

To further reduce unnecessary writes to the SSD, in the /etc/fstab entry
for your partitions on the SSD, add the noatime and nodatime options.

Anyone know what the parking situation at the hotel is? Do we have to pay?

Free parking for around 2000 cars... if you can't find a spot you could
park a little further south at one of the malls.

So what time can people setting up booths drop in? Also, will it be 
necessary to fully break down booths during the night?

Also the train is reasonably close (at least as close as last year
when it was at SAIT.)

Get off at Marlborough Station, head towards Canadian Tire, but keep
following 36th street until you get to the hotel (it's only two
intersections away, about 0.8km, and will take 10 minutes if you walk
slowly.)

Here's an enormous url for the Google maps walking direction from the
CTrain station:
