And you can’t beat the $21 parking pass! The next Computer Blast is scheduled for Saturday, July 10th. It will be at the Live Oak Civic Center – 9AM till 5PM. SATLUG has a booth at the Blast to promote our favorite (and soon to be updated) Open Source software.

We are also open to installs at the Computer Blast show WITH PRIOR ARRANGEMENT. Please do not just bring your computer to the Show expecting an install without first arranging for someone from the SATLUG mailing list to meet you there and/or to confirm that SATLUG will have adequately qualified personnel and distribution media there to help you with the install. However, if you have a Linux problem on a laptop or portable PC that you can bring in, that is OK.

Oh, and now a valuable hint. If you click the link on the Computer Blast website, you can print out a $1.00 off entry coupon. See ya all there…
