The Southern California Linux Expo is this weekend in Los Angeles.  Here
are some last minute details:

The Expo has added one additional speaker.  Doug Hass, Director of
Business Development for ImageStream, will speak on “Advanced Quality of
Service and Firewalls using Linux”

His presentation covers the key concepts of quality of service and
access list filtering using Open Source tools.  The presentation
includes an explanation of filtering using Linux's iptables tool and
standard queuing methods as defined in the Differentiated Services RFC
as well as applications of these methods through generic case studies.

The Expo has added another BOF, “Schools And Open Source Software”.
There are a few BOF (Birds Of a Feather) session slots still available
at SCALE on Sunday.  If your group needs a meeting room for a BOF,
contact gareth at socallinuxexpo.com to reserve one.  The current BOFs can
be viewed at http://socallinuxexpo.com/scale5x/events/bof.php

If you live nearby, and have surplus electronic equipment you'd like to
discard, you can bring it to SCALE and dispose of it legally.  Access to
the drop off point is a bit circuitous; we've created a map showing the
approach and departure from the drop off area.  If you are bringing
equipment to dispose of, make sure you consult the map prior to leaving
for the Westin. The map can be found at

If you don't register ahead of time and have a question about the Expo
during the Expo weekend, the SCALE phone number will be manned by
Registration personnel during show hours.  You can call 877-831-2569 and
be routed through the SCALE Asterisk PBX directly to someone at

The Vendor showcases currently booked are IBM with “Business Innovation
Through Linux”, and Verio with “Linux Virtualization in Action”.

The SCALE sponsors have generously donated oodles of prizes for the
SCALE raffles.  The biggies are:

Winners must be present to receive raffle prizes.

SCALE has received a ton of books to disburse during the Expo.  Each
speaker at SCALE will receive several books to hand out at their
session.  (E.g., for the best question during a Q&A session).

SCALE will be February 9-11, at The Westin LAX Hotel.  Expo information
and registration is available at http://socallinuxexpo.com/

Come join us for the best Open Source show on the West Coast!
