More pre-meeting ideas/rambling

Earlier in the year I started an hour long session with volunteers at The Working Centre to get them used to using Linux. I did some open office presentations. If people are interested, I could also show them during the pre-meeting.

In an unrelated note... I've also started putting the LUG books into Tellico.

From the web site:

Tellico is a KDE application for organizing your collections. It provides default templates for books, bibliographies, videos, music, video games, coins, stamps, trading cards, comic books, and wines.

Tellico uses XML to store data rather than an sql data base.

Thanks for pointing those details out Richard. It's a great little program. All you have to do to record a book is enter the ISBN number and do a lookup on the book, makes book entry a snap.

So I have 2 thoughts about Tellico. One thought involves bringing a small computer with it to LUG meetings so people can just sign the books out on the computer. The other is just continuing to use the sign out forms and I spend one hour updating the database a month. It's not a big job to do, and I'm in a better position to do it now than I was six months ago.
