Open Source Saturday crashes into Groundhog's Day!

From: John F.
Sent on: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 10:47 AM

As we all know (from watching movies of course) the only way to exit a recurring nightmare is to find true happiness on Groundhog's Day.  I'm not promising Open Source will do that for you, but not having to use Windows 8 seems like a good start. :)

So, right, we are meeting on Groundhog's Day and I'll try to keep the Bill Murray references to a minimum.  Nancy, Lincoln, Walsh. Got it.

We will put a Chromebook up on the projector, and see what all the fuss is about.  Near instant boot times, great battery life, ZERO work to maintain the OS (Google does all that work for you), and under $250.

A quick QR code primer.  Main points are information density, error recovery, and darn easy they are to make.  I like these guys:

The search for a good DLNA server goes on, I'll report what little I have liked...

So come on out, join us for lunch afterwards... but please don't drive angry!
