Oktoberfest 2006

AC4GC's first Oktoberfest was also last weekend. A good turnout despite rain and being only a few miles away from the well-established GreekFest.

Michael of the, now closed :(, German Corner made sure we were well-fed. There was beer, of course. There was a booth from the Irish Cultural Center. That might've had something to do with the beer :).

The Irish Cultural Center has really been a help in getting AC4GC and the Oktoberfest started. Sliante!

$gf bought me a cool traditional germanic shirt.

Picked up some Feigling suspenders and saw a guy with a cool Lederhosen t-shirt.

GreekFest 2006

Autumn GreekFest was last week. Much fun as usual.

No souvlaki this year :(, but there was DANCING.

Yup, go figure, a bunch of Greeks get together, a Bouzouki comes and and there's DANCING. They don't quite hop around as much as a bunch of meercats in a war dance, but it's still lots of fun.

We had gyros. We had greek donuts. We danced. Life was good.

A friend who's worked the GreekFest for years took this year off, so we didn't hang out at the end and watch them DANCE^W clean up for the night.

GreekFest: go because it's there. OPA!!!

AC4GC Webausschuss faengt an

Wir haben uns mit einem Teil des Boardes getroffen. Es wurde entschieden, ein Webausschuss zu grunden.

Es muß auch ein Formular für Freiwillige beim Oktoberfest gemacht werden. Michael macht's.

Der Webausschuss emailt und trifft sich weiter um Design und Architektur des Sites zu verbessern.

Eventuel mußen wir auch Email und Emaillisten herrschen. Zuerst das Website verbessern.

ac4gc Oktoberfest

The Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures announced its Oktoberfest plans. Added the event to the calendar.

Also updated the calendar a little including fixing a Kino Abend entry.

Happy sysadm Day!!!

Today is sysadm day, so remember to thank your system administrators.

System administrators are professionals who work many thankless hours keeping the computing infrastructure working.

Sysadms don't get free trips to Hawaii for meeting quotas, don't get company cards to use for happy hours and generally don't get to come in late the day after working late.

Sysadms do get paged at all hours of the day and night ( not to mention weekends and holidays ), do get yelled at by people because something broke and do get to work long hours because someone else broke something.

aieeee, the colors

Ich habe mit dem CSS gespielt und endlich kapiert wie man die Texte in der verschiedene Rubrike anders farben kann.

Es sieht gerade etwa häßich aus. Wir können's aber jetzt verbessern.

PLUG mtg and site updates

Talked to Brian to make sure we'll be set for the west side meeting at the new location. He'll get the cheesecake from me Friday night. He'll make sure food is arranged somehow.

Posted a reminder about the meeting to the discuss list.

Updated the meeting entry on the web site to have a description of the topic and info on the new location.

Added an article for the meeting. I don't see how to do links in the articles, so the links to the school and map don't work. Sent mail to the webdev list saying there's a problem.

Sent mail to the webdev list thanking Alan and Jared for the new banner ads.

neue Veranstaltungen und Geschaefte

Es wurde welche neue Veranstaltungen in den Kalendar eingetragen, hauptsächlich die AC4GC Filmreihe und WM Spiele.

Es wurde auch welche Geschäfte besser in der Firmenverzeichnis eingetragen.

Die Firmenverzeichnis wird jetzt als Business Listing beschrieben.

Das Geschäft link wurde gelöst. Es ist schon lägst bei der Firmenverzeichnis ersetzt.

Write the french budget

Apparently the french politicians are tired of listening to everyone bitch and have arranged to let everyone create their own budget for France!

It's all a video game (en France), but still a cool idea.

Wonder if you'd have to upgrade to a 64 bit computer in order to work with the .us deficit...

PLUG meeting changes

The west side meeting is moving to the Arizona Conservatory for Arts and Academics near I-17 and Bell.

We will be meeting in a computer classroom with 60 boxen running GNU/Linux!

The initial class will be on using Blender and we will have food and drinks on hand for the 'grand opening'.

Being just off the freeway should make the meetings much more accessable.

I'm also starting a series named "How I use Free Software". Just a few minutes from someone on how they use Free Software. Doesn't matter if it's work or personal.
