[Fwd: invitation: Linux 10th anniversary picnic/BBQ, Aug 25]
- Anyone up in Sunnyvale next month might want to check this event out.
The rest of us -- well, maybe we should hold our own little BBQ down
here. The linux10.org site says it'll happily link to other anniversary
celebrations. Anyone know of a good park we can use for a barbequeue / picnic on Aug 25th?
