For Your Information :

reasonable time frame,  there will be a FREE one day conference this
month at the end of the month.  This will be the 4th annual
conference.   Here are some of the details and links :

 Free - Ohio LinuxFest 2006 - Registration Open

Last year's Ohio LinuxFest was, hands-down, the best one yet. With more
than 700 attendees and great speakers from KDE, IBM, Novell, HP, the
Linux Terminal Server Project, Ubuntu, the Apache Software Foundation,
and many others, it was a great time for all involved -- and we're sure
that this year will be even better.

This year's LinuxFest will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention
Center on Saturday, September 30. This is an event for experienced and
inexperienced Linux users, with three conference tracks, an expo floor
with commercial exhibitors and community projects, and the opportunity
to meet hundreds of other FOSS users and enthusiasts.

The Ohio LinuxFest 2006 is free for all to attend, but you do need to
register ahead of time. This year we're also offering an All Conference
Pass for $65 that will help offset the cost of running the conference.

 The All Conference Pass includes lunch on the day of the conference, drink
tickets for the party after the conference, vendor swag, access to
the conference suite at the Holiday Inn, and a limited-edition Ohio
LinuxFest t-shirt.

If you're planning to attend, sign up at


and be sure to do so early. The registration deadline is September 22,
but we do recommend that you register early to help us gain an accurate
head count to plan by.

 For those attending the LinuxFest from out of town, we have arranged
a group rate through the Holiday Inn Columbus City Center, but the
number of rooms are limited and reservations must be made before
September 5 to qualify for the group rate. See
http://ohiolinux.org/attend_hotel.html for more information on lodging.

We also have a limited number of .Org sponsorship packages available,
but they're going fast. Be sure to sign up right away if you'd like to
represent your FOSS project at the Ohio LinuxFest.

This year's Ohio LinuxFest is shaping up to be the best one ever, so be
sure to register right away. We look forward to seeing you in Columbus
in September!

Best regards,

The Ohio LinuxFest organizers team [ at ] ohiolinux [ dot ] org

 This is presented in the hopes of promoting cooperation and the
making of connections between the Linux groups and Forensic groups in
the Mid-west area.
