Western PA Linux Users Group invites you to an Installfest
on this Saturday November 13, 2004. It will take place in
Carnegie Mellon University's Newel Simon Hall, room 1507
and will run from 10am until 5pm.


There is likely going to be a detour due to construction. Please read the 
detour directions and plan accordingly. http://www.wplug.org/detour

If you need help finding the place or need someone to open the door call
412 268 7564 or 8-7564 on a campus phone between 10am-5pm and someone will
help you. If you've never been here before, please check out the map and
directions page. Better yet, print it out and bring it with you.

Yes, you want to print out the detour directions and the wplugmap page.
Trust me, this saves everyone time.


Please show up earlier rather than later to ensure that you can get help. 
For example, if you show up much later than 2pm it is likely that you will not
have enough time to install and configure.

Installfests, as well as all WPLUG meetings, are open to the general
public. If you just want to see what Linux is about or you've been
a Linux guru for years, the WPLUG installfest is for you.

For those who don't know, the purpose of an installfest is to
facilitate new installations of Linux as well as troubleshoot, upgrade,
or generally provide help with an existing installations.  If you just
want to just show off your new hardware or some software goodies, that's
cool too. So bring your machine and have some fun!

As well as your machine, you will want to bring your monitor, network
cables, power cables, surge protector, mouse, keyboard, media, etc.
Don't worry, there will be a cart on hand to haul all of your stuff in.

Installfests of course also need volunteers to help with the installs
and generally be available for questions.  So even if you don't feel like
bringing your own machine, come and help others out!

Pizza lunch will be served around noon for a donation of $5.
Don't make me stand up on a chair this time! PEEET-ZA!

This meeting will be your first chance to participate in the membership 
drive. While WPLUG will always be free and open to the public, we are
offering the optional opportunity for greater membership involvement.

Hope to see you there
