Someone from LinuxFund.Org read my diary entry from July where I mentioned that their agreement limits grants to US residents. I never got around to ask them about this and now I don't have to do that anymore because he contacted me about it and said that they're going to change that. Cool. (This should have been in my last diary entry).
Today the Hamburg Linux User Group had an install party in Altona at the HEW Kundenzentrum (A Customer Center or something in English :-) of Hamburg's electricity company). We didn't have much room, only enough for a few demo machines and a handful of actual installations, but we attracted quite a few people who wanted to learn about linux or ask questions. The HEW people were apparently very pleased with the outcome and offered to let us have the next install party (probably in January 2001) in the main customer center in the city center where we'd have much more room (At least that's what I heard afterwards at the dinner).
The event will be going on tomorrow (Sunday 10th) from 12:00 till 18:00, so if anybody in Hamburg is interested in meeting fellow Linuxers this might be a good opportunity. The Kundenzentrum is in the Große Bergstraße. I wanted to put a hyperlink to the relevant page of the HEW web site here but those pages can't be navigated without Java Script and with JS enabled Netscape kept crashing on me, so be careful if you follow that link.
