I'm presenting on LaTeX tomorrow night... need a little help.
1] my laptop has ATi Radeon xpress 200M graphics chipset. the external
video does NOT work under linux at the moment. I strongly recomend
NVIDIA based upon my limited experience w/ a personal machine and the
machines at work w/ Nvidia chipsets... I spent half hour+ messing
around w/ different settings with our projector here at work w/ no
luck. I need someone to bring a ``projector friendly'' laptop or
something with LaTeX installed on it. It will also need [ghostview, gv
or gsview-- one of those], ps2pdf [should come w/ ghostscript], and
[acroread of xPDF]. We will probably use this minimally as we walk
through basic compiles-- and at the end if there's interest-- we could
try tackling requests that are within my ability...
2] Since LaTeX is a page / paper / typsetting program-- it's fitting to
have notes on PAPER. [while many are trying to preserve trees-- I'll do
my part to support the Forest Industry]. I'd like a rough estimate of
people planning on attending so I can have notes / code examples printed
for everyone attending. If you're planning on attending-- please send
an email to me [or the PLUG].
I'm planning on posting notes afterwards-- but would like to provide
hardcopies for those in attendance :-)
