LQ May be Headed to LinuxWorld UK


The possibility of LQ attending LinuxWorld UK has gotten one step closer to becoming a reality. We will find out for sure on September 1st, but all signs now point to it being possible. The single remaining issue at that point will become funding. The trip to LWE UK will be considerable more costly then the trips within the USA. For that reason, all donations and contributing member funds received between now and the show on October 6th will go to help fund our trip. Any and all help is really appreciated. We have a large UK following, and it will be great to be able to meet some of our UK members. If you have any questions, feel free to post. Thanks.

Well, well well...
I must say, that the faithful have their way of winning.
I have too many college loans to send in money, but I will send a warm message.

An airplane ticket doesn't cost all that much. IF the dudes at Linuxquestions don't fund your trip, why don't you ask Redhat Corporation? They seem to be doing rather well, by pulling their mainstream product off the nerd shelf.

So, I see no problem you making the trip. As far as we are concerned, we are doing more than our two cents worth, by helping you debug Fedora.

George

P.S: Nothing personal, but Microhat is not my way of doing work. Slackware forever!

george314, you seem a bit confused. Redhat is in no way affiliated with LQ, so I can't imagine they'd pay for me to go. If you know something I don't though, speak up As far as "the dudes at Linuxquestions" funding the trip, I *am* the dude - ie. I pay all the bills for the site. The plane ticket is quite a bit more then I expected (about 1200-1300USD it would seem for the week of LWE UK) and we have already exhibited in New York and San Francisco. Running LQ is not cheap, as you may imagine, so I am hoping some members can kick in a little cash to help offset some of the cost. For those members who don't have the cash - as always, your participation is valued above all else, so please don't feel like you have to give.

Thanks,
--jeremy

Jeremy, I'm sorry for my confusion. For the longest time I thought that Fedora funded this site.
Oops. Big oops.

As far as trippin' I wish you best of luck.

George

P.S: By the way, THANKS FOR MAINTAINING THIS SITE
I must say that many of my linux curiosity has been
soothed by the wisdom of fellow linux users like you.

P.S: If you were in Atlanta, then I would do my best to drop
in a visit. There is a good bit of Linuxism going on there,
since Georgia Tech nerds have problems getting
dates on weekends.

Now that's funny.. if we had Redhat funding us, I wouldn't have to go to work everyday to get paid but instead keep doing what I do here... and that would rock if I didn't have to buy 400 dollar or more airplane tickets just to make it to LWE each time.. and no, LWE UK wouldn't be hundreds of dollars.. probably more like $1200... not including hotel, cab, food and other expenses..

A big thanks to those who contribute to help this site grow.. and I'll be suprised if any of us Americans make it to the UK Expo.. maybe another year for me, but I will be in Boston most likely.

Cheers.

george314, no problem. A couple mods are actually in the ATL area, BTW. For LWE UK, the turnout for LQ looks to be quite good as a bunch of our mods are in or around the UK. Thanks for the heads up on registering david_ross.

guys, I really hope you make it to London
there is so much hot a$$ there...

as far as money...
Damn, we linux bastards are a fickle bunch. We install for source, and then don't pay for
any of this shit.

tricky is what tricky does

linux lovers

all ya linux lovers out there
I have $20,000 worth of college debt, and I donated $25 to
the London trip

If you want to help out with this cause, you may be in a better
position to donate cash. It takes just a couple of minutes.

I'm just grateful to the guys who maintain this site, that
I was able to avoid lot's of frustration...
SO, DONATE!

Maybe someone from the linuxquestions guys will get a date in LONDON!

Well you couldn't make it to the SanFrancisco LW Expo .. so I thought you would be delighted.
LW wouldn't have any India plans yet
