Today, 14Nov2006, LOPSA is having its one year anniversary!
Congrats to LOPSA for all of its accomplishments in just one year.
Thanks to all the volunteers ( and let's not forget that the LOPSA board members are also all vounteers ) who've worked so hard to make LOPSA a success! Thanks also to the sponsors who've supported LOPSA and all its many activities.
LOPSA formed and immediately built active mailing lists with lots of good sysadm content. A couple of weeks later LOPSA had a strong presence at LISA. Many LOPSA members actively work to make LISA happen, so that was no big surprise :).
Das AZBizNetz Site ist schon lange bereit.
Heute habe ich ein Paar Leute geemailt und gebeten ihre Firmen in den Firmenverzeichnis zu eintragen.
Einer hat Probleme, denn URL wurde nur mit http:// oder https:// richtig behandelt. Ich habe's korriegiert. Jetzt wird URL ohne Protokolbezeichnung wird als http behandelt.
Ich habe auch notiert, daß das Logo ein Bild sein muß.
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.
