What is LXNY?



LXNY General Meeting
Tuesday 2 February 1999



LXNY will have a general meeting Tuesday 2 February 1999.

This meeting is free and open to the public.

The meeting starts at 6:30 pm.

The meeting is at the IBM building at 57th Street and Madison Avenue on the Island of Manhattan.


LXNY will meet regularly
the first Tuesday of each month at IBM throughout 1999.
LXNY and its supporters thank IBM for the donation of this meeting space.
LXNY also thanks those who,
inside and outside of IBM,
worked in favor of this gift.


The Schools and Libraries Project is today bringing free OSes and other free software into New York City schools and libraries. A brief report on the Project will be made. The Project stands in need of sysadmins, teachers of *n*x, and volunteers who do not yet know *n*x.


The Hardware Initiative will be discussed.


Refund Day will be discussed. After the meeting there will be an informal gathering of people who want to take part in Refund Day, which is 15 February 1999. Those who have pledged to buy tickets and those who wish to pledge to buy tickets for the Refund Day Raffle are invited to come to this gathering.


We'd like to have as many laptops running a free OS as possible at the meeting, since there may be people at the meeting who have never consciously seen a free OS in action.
