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:

<cite><a href="">Tellico</a&gt; 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.</cite>

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.
