ubuntu Global Jam 2012 - Allegheny Mountain Jam - March 10th
A couple of days ago I sat in on one Jono Bacon's (Ubuntu) on-line
conference (video) calls - in the call he challeged folks to put
together a meet-up type event for the following weekend - yes, really
even with only 7 days notice - Just do it!
Well, made the calls to reserve some space - good to go. The first
Ubuntu Allegheny Mountain Jam, Cumberland MD - March 30th 2012.
[It's a week long - but is the best I could do...]
Folks can register to come, or just show up, but it would be cool if you
want to come, or want to try...if you would update the event record at:
Mountain Jam - 2012
Cumberland's a great weekend retreat - if you are in Baltimore,
Washington DC, Pittsburg PA it's less then a 3 hour drive to the eastern
Bring you laptop, your android tablet or that desktop in your pocket -
I'll have a couple of pressed discs with the full LibreOffice-NA DVD
image, recently finished up by Tim L.
- also available for download from (http://libreoffice-na.us)
Will bring the latest LibreOffice On-Line 3.6 build, as a binary on an
OpenSUSE 12.1 server VM.. can poke at that..
I don't have an actual Android device to bring BTW...so I'm hoping some
folks making the trip will correct that... ;-)
Also put together a presentation, via Google docs, to use as an on-line
promo.. found at:
Get together - say hello- look at the latest packages from Ubuntu- take
a peak at LibreOffice On-Line- have a hot cup of coffee, or cold
beer[Yes - it's off by a week - oops]

My server will not allow ISO files or Zipped files the size of a CD. So
it was placed on a TDF/LO server for your download needs. I thank them
for doing this.
I do not know who else has an English language DVD, but the NA-DVD has
almost 4 GB of files. Installs for 3.4.5 for Windows, Linux, and
MacOSX. It has language/Help packs for several non-English languages
that are in the North American region. It has Documentation, over 180
Dictionaries, Extensions, Templates, Artwork, and some other "extras"
that may be useful.
The 2500 by 2500 pixel label for this DVD is at the following link [1.4
MB in size]
The DVD is the same as what is online, except it is viewed from your DVD
reader instead of online. That is what it was created for. People can
use the DVD to get the things that might need, without the need to go
online to get it. This is useful for slower access services or
computers with not access at all.
There are currently more dictionaries and thesaurus ".oxt" files on this
page than at the LO Extension Center. Hopefully that will not be the
case for too much longer.
Check out our English dictionaries. The American[en_US], the
British[en_GB], and the Canadian[en_CA], languages have the largest
known spelling word content for English. The largest of these are the
638,000+ word list version[s] with a thesaurus of over 140,000 listed
word and phrase "lookups" in each one. One day, I hope to have the
time to finish and upload the even larger versions of these "kpp"
English dictionaries, with about 1000 +/- words added, plus a new one
for American English with over 750,000 spell checking words in the list.
