Your Team DSL:

Should I have let them know they could "up" their framerate by using DSL ?
Special Thanks to Matt and Erin at Mepis for their exceptional hospitality.
A good bunch of folks over there at Mepis, putting their heart and soul
into spreading the good word about Linux to the masses.. Our best wishes.

Posted by Tux5 on Aug. 23 2005,22:38Thanks for the interesting post. Almost as good as being there. :-)
Posted by clacker on Aug. 23 2005,23:15Looked like a good time. Were you able to spread the word much? Did you get to hand out any liveCDs? Did you have a booth?
Posted by roberts on Aug. 24 2005,20:36Yes, we spread the word, handed out many cds. Impressed many, including some skeptical hardware vendors, where we booted up and demo'ed DSL!. Many knew of us! Personally, I ran into, John "Mad Dog" Hall, he remember me from the first Linux World, where I was a presenter (Linux and the City of Garden Grove). I handed him a cd too! It was indeed alot of fun. The weather was beautiful; so cool!
