The t-shirts sound cool. Any idea what the price would be? Also, won't
we need to order them soon if we want them by the 29th? Is there
anything else we need to do for logo approval?
I'm planning on going to OLF; I guess I'd better sign up and request
time off from work! Anyone else going and live close to Indy? I'd love
to carpool. I'm about to shoot off a carpooling query to CINLUG, but I
figured it would be worth a shot to ask around here, too. I live on the
NE side but would be glad to meet up anywhere around Indy--it's a hell
of a lot shorter than driving all the way to Ohio!
Oh, and for those who've gone before: any hotel and/or restaurant
recommendations? I'm but a poor student, so inexpensive is good!

There's an organisation here in Indianapolis called Virtual Scavengers
that fixes up old computers and gives them to the needy. I'll ask them
if they'd be interested in a FOSS presentation.
I also came up with a the beginnings of an idea that is quite
FOSS-related, but it's just occurred to me tonight and I'll need some
more time to have it bounce around my head. It's not really related to
Software Freedom Day, though. I may post to the list in a few days
soliciting ideas and input. Stay tuned! ;)
