I was searching for a open source quickbooks type application today and stumbled across . Looks like it probably does what I want, but unforunatley it only runs on Windows :\.

new powerbook

Saturday, May 28th, 2005

I’ve picked up a new Powerbook. It is the 12″ model. The fan is a little loud but other than that its awesome. I was watching a DVD earlier on my CRT while browsing the web and copying files over the network on the LCD. I didn’t feel a single hickup!

Now the question is should I install Linux? I’ll definately be putting Fink on here, but I don’t believe the wireless or network card are supported in Linux due to being based on Broadcom drivers. I’ll do some more research tomorrow while at SCLUG.

Found LinuxFund

Saturday, May 28th, 2005

I managed to track down one of Linux Fund’s founder’s Benjamin Cox. We have a conference call scheduled for next weekend. I have a pretty good idea on the status of LinuxFund, but Id rather wait until I have the whole story before reporting. If you’re interested in what I know so far feel free to contact me privately.


SCALE 4x dates and venue!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

We’ve finally selected a date and venue for SCALE 4x, the 2006 Southern California Linux Expo. It will be held at the Westin LAX on Feb 11-12, 2006.

We believe holding it at a hotel will make it easier for all of us to mingle, hold BOFs, etc. In addition we have all the meeting space reversed for SCALE so we won’t be combating chearleaders or RIAA snipers.

If you’re interested in participating in SCALE as a speaker, sponsor, or volunteer please let us know.
