***** New Venue Information *******
Newell Simon Hall Perlis Atrium is accessible from the 3rd floor entrance
of Newell Simon Hall which is level with Forbes Avenue. This is a wide
open cafeteria-style space located just steps from our new meeting room
Newell Simon 3002. We have _not_ confirmed arrangements for the 3rd floor
entrance of Newell Simon to be unlocked therefore you _may_ have to
call for someone to let you in. The phone number for this purpose is
412 268 6704. We'll have signs to indicate if the doors are locked or not
in the 3rd floor lobby along with the phone number to call with the campus
Please note that on campus demolition projects have significantly effected
parking near Newell Simon Hall. On 7/8 the driveway From Forbes to Frew
will be completely closed to traffic. Do NOT try to park in front of or
behind Newell Simon Hall because this driveway will be completely closed
to non-construction traffic on 7/8. There will be no exceptions!
You will only be able to park in the Morewood Parking lot which is right
across Forbes Avenue. You will be permitted to borrow a cart but you will
need to come inside Newell Simon Hall to retrieve/return it.
Since the traffic patterns on campus have changed, I encourage all to
check out the map before heading out.
As always, if you need directions on the day of, you may
call us at 412 268 6704 or 86704 on a campus phone.

Installfest, 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.
As always, installfests 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 will be served around noon so be sure to bring $5 if you wish
to eat lunch with us.
Don't make me stand up on a chair this time! PEEET-ZA!
Hope to see you there,
