A joint celebration of the Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat release and the life and works of Douglas Adams (Hitchhickers guide to the galaxy, etc). In conjunction with zz9.org
From 12 noon until 3pm the Ubuntu release party will show you how to install and use Ubuntu. There are a wide range of applications to discuss, from web servers,desktop publishing, development environments and tools and multimedia editing (for creating cool videos and podcasts)
Anyone and everyone interested can come and get help with installing and get the most out of Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat).
We will be in the main bar from 12 noon until 3pm. Look for someone with atleast two Asus netbooks in front of them.
From 3pm you can join in with the ZZ9.org party and celebrate all the great ideas and words Douglas Adams has given us. The 42 day party will be in the downstairs function room of the pub, so if you come between 2pm and 3pm, we may be hiding down there.
The ZZ9.org party is part of the worldwide 42 Day celebrations - fortytwoday.com.
It's not part of this event, but you may be interested in the screening of the Hichhickers movie - 10am at the Apollo, Piccadilly - http://www.sci-fi-london.com/news/festival/2010/08/42-day-screening-hitchhikers
