Linux 15th Year Anniversary

Etc/GMT-5

Description:
Tux will turn 15 this August 14 and GatorLUG is throwing a party to commemorate the public release of the Linux operating system. Come join us at Fiber Optics Plus to socialize and raise a toast to Mr. Torvalds for his contribution of Linux to the world.
There will be stuff to drink (like beer, probably not domestic unless home brewed). Bring your own flavor if you prefer the domestic product.
There will be stuff to eat both grilled, non grilled, vegetarian and non vegetarian.
There will be OSCON 2006 Shwag for those who give exceptional karaoke performances, win the "Are you a Werewolf" game or make other notable contributions to the "life of the party".
We are going to prepare for 30 to 40 guests. Send me an email if you know you are coming. That way, we can buy more food and drink if we need to. I hope to see you there!

Location:
Fiber Optics Plus (117 NW 16th Ave, Gainesville, FL)

party eh?

Well whenever me and some computer nerd friends of mine have a party, it usually involves a switch or HUB and counter strike or something similar.

A party...

Parties I attend usually involve alcohol.

It's ok, I can type when I'm drunk, I promise.

Where will this "party" be held?

Looking for ideas

I posted the event to get some discussion going on what we should do. The date falls on a Monday. We should organize something significant to mark the occasion.

maybe we can have some kind

maybe we can have some kind of a modding party
gather a bunch of older (or new) hardware and build some custom PC cases or something, then install linux on everything.

Tux's birthday

I'm in favor of the Alcohol, all right, but do we have a definitive word on when and where yet?

It seems it is to be held on 23rd Ave, but this is getting close, and still no definitive word.

I think it should go out on Linux-L so that everyone can manage to be there. How about it Clint?
