Re: [seul-edu] Mandrake Distro.....

It was a pleasure to meet all of you at LWExpo, (San
Jose, Ca).
As usual my available time is shorter than expected,
nevertheless I had some nice talk with most of you.

If I remember, I had a talk with Colette, Aaron, Jeff
and Bill. I hope I did not forget anybody.
They all did a great job.

On the down side, I had the feeling you were
understaffed. For two booth it was a lot of work for
the team.

Let's improve it for next time.

Also, let me know if you would like to change
As an example, were the computers ok for the show ?

You are not the only one to mention the lag of some
cities in the time zone locations. Thank you for your
comment, it will help to improve the application.
