We're beginning to start some serious work on this fall's ALS.  This
announcement is going to comp.os.linux.announce shortly.  I would also
like to remind you that you can join the ALS list, if you are interested 
in helping out with the show (email majordomo at cc.gatech.edu with 
"s*bscribe als" in the message body).


Join us for the 2nd annual Atlanta Linux Showcase!  Our show will
feature exhibitors showing the latest Linux hardware, software, books,
magazines, CDROMs, tshirts and more.  We will also have two full days of
technical, advocacy and business talks by international speakers from
the Linux and free software community.  In the evenings, we will have
BOF sessions and a fundraiser dinner to keep you entertained.

The 1998 Atlanta Linux Showcase will be held Friday October 23 -
Saturday October 24 following the 1998 NetWorld + Interop show in
Atlanta.  Registration and BOFs begin Thursday October 22 in the
