Open Source Saturday

Joyous tidings!  May open source and sugared plums dance in your head, making some kind of of open plum?  At least we all know Oracle is on the naughty list... again.

Quickly:

Replacing a broken Tablet glass/digitizer
I finally broke after 3 years my tablet's glass, a ASUS Transformer.  We will use this as a learning opportunity and swap it out for the new one I sourced on eBay for $30.

OpenSUSE 13.1 (link)
I have loaded the latest and greatest from the land of Germany and it is pretty friggin sweet!  After using Unity for so long I had forgotten what a full power KDE desktop could do. And it looks awesome.  Will show that off on the two TVs...

And maybe a new food place, if you guys feel adventurous. The Wild Turkey by the bowling alley on Walnut is a North Dallas institution, burgers and beers.

Cya there!

 

---- Caution: Generic Meetup description follows ---

We are a group of some serious, and some not-so-serious, geeks that want to see the Open Source Ethos spread and help as many people as will let it.  During the meetings, which are pretty much an excuse to get together and have fun, we catch up on topical and industry news, projects, code releases, recent technical problems and solutions...

There are sometimes presentations - anything open source but if it is software then running on more than 1 platform is preferred (Linux, Mac, Win, etc.).  Mobile is an exception due to Apple's refusal to let FOSS code onto their IOS platform - so we talk about Android a lot more.

I you have an itch to scratch that can be solved by technology, bring it on in!  You well always get an educated opinion and sometimes a useful answer too.  The group is not homogeneous around one specific technology, or industry, or language or nationality.  What we have in common is our desire to make our lives better, and the set of people in "our" is everyone, everywhere.

Join us afterwards for lunch! Hope you have a hunger for adventure. ;)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
