20th Anniversary of Linux next month (August 2011)
- Put on your dancing shoes, music by PulseAudio and the Tin Can Kickers,
and celebrate August 17-19, 2011; details and information here:
Event being held in Vancouver (presumably British Columbia in Canada as
opposed to Vancouver WA; it's whichever one has a "Commodore Ballroom";
I haven't been to Vancouver BC since 1984 when I piloted a 55-ft boat
up the Inside Passage to Alaska and had to restock veggies at Granville
Island in Vancouver due to Canadian customs seizing all USA produce due
to a [false] pest scare).
USA visitors be aware the border between Canada and the USA is tight and
you WILL need a passport (either the bound book or the credit-card-sized
one) -- no longer can one cross the border by simply declaring one's
citizenship verbally. Photo driver licenses DO NOT QUALIFY as adequate
identification for border crossings anymore.
