Question 1: Is there any reason we would _not_ want Smaug to be
added to the list of "participating organisations" along with other
Bay Area LUGs? If, as I hope, there isn't, I'll be adding Smaug to
the growing list on http://www.linuxpicnic.org/ .
(If you're not familiar with the Linux Picnic aka "Picnix", it's a
social gathering and free BBQ feed put on every year on the approximate
anniversary of Linux's founding, at a park in Sunnyvale.)
Question 2: Assuming we're participating, could someone add one of the
Linux Picnic logos to our front page? Thanks.

Picn*x 15 Announcement
The Picn*x 15 Committee cordially invites all the friends of open source
software to a picnic to be held Saturday August 19, 2006 from 11AM - 5PM
at Sunnyvale's Baylands Park. This years theme celebrates the
tremendous progress made by the open source community over the last
fifteen years, including, but not limited to, FreeBSD, GNU, Apache,
MySQL, PERL, Python, PHP, OpenOffice, GIMP, and of course Linux. There
are over 70,000 open source projects. We truly live in a new world.
August 19 is the Saturday following the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo
in San Francisco. The Picn*x 15 Committee encourages Conference
attendees to stay over for the picnic. A large out-of-town turnout is
expected since this year's Expo celebrates the 15th anniversary of
Linux. Early registration is advised.
For your inner geek, the picnic has activities like installing and
troubleshooting software on your laptop, experimenting with wireless
communication, and visits to local hardware stores. For your inner
child there is acoustic music, Frisbee, soccer, bocce ball, softball,
volleyball and juggling.
Participating organizations include: BayLISA, The Bay Area Large
Installation System Administrators; The Linux User Group of Davis; The
South Bay Community Network; The Silicon Valley Linux User Group; and
The Silicon Valley Wireless Users and Experimenters.
The picnic is free to attendees, but reservations are required. Many
thanks to our sponsors, including Mirapoint, Raw Bandwidth, BayLISA, and
Splunk. See http://www.linuxpicnic.org for additional information.
