Yesterday (Thursday 11th November 2004), Manal, Alaa, Ezabi, MohammedSameer and DJ-King's laptop arrived @ Mansheyet Nasr @ 9 p.m after getting lost on the "autostraud" looking for a u-turn.

First, Ezabi and Manal were setting up the network, (Ezabi did the major part of course) while Alaa and MohammedSameer were installing GNU/Linux on one of the pcs in preparation of a network install.

The LAST course

When we started giving GNU/Linux courses for Beginners in August we were planning to give 4 courses only, but due to the great demand we continued to give them in September and the first half of October.

Although we still have a very long waiting list for the courses, attendance has been very low in the past two courses, we are not sure if this is due to mistakes on the booking and confirmation process or a sign of change in the demand.

EGLUG announces that the courses will stop with the beginning of the month of Ramadan.

The last course will start on the 10th of October.

We hope that we gained new GNU/Linux users and new EGLUG members :-)

EGLUG social gethering in Alex

last saturday while on my vacation I went with MohammedSammeer and Manal to Alex where we had a big EGLUG social gathering.

we met all of EGLUG Alex members except for OneOfOne who found out he was alergic to clean air and sunlight (the whole EGLUG alex population consists of DarknessWolf, LinuxAwy and Sherbo).

we had great fun at downtown alex which is not realy downtown alex, then at downtown alex wich is proper downtown alex, we found out alexandrian geeks don't know anything about their city and had to consult google in order to locate kadora, a net cafe, a coffee shop or even the sea (yes they did not know where the sea was).
