The Habitat Suites Hotel down in Austin is giving us Linux people a cheaper rate for the event weekend. This is a 'green' hotel as well. It is walking distance to the event. The rates are 89.99 a night, + taxes, I was told on the phone it was total of $204.76 with all taxes for Friday night, and Saturday night. Want to lock this in soon as possible to do so. Mapquest thinks it is going to cost $38.20 fuel down and $38.20 back home so $76.40 for fuel. Right around $300 for the weekend, for hotel and fuel.
I would really like to attend in order to work the Fedora booth so that I can help spread Fedora to a larger audience of my home state than I am normally able to get here in my home town. I will be bringing two laptops both powered by Fedora. One of which is a tablet so we can show off some of that fun stuff. I unfortunately lack the funding for the hotel room and such, my financial break down for the weekend is extremely similar to that of Chris Tucker's as outlined above and would also like to request a similar amount in order to cover expenses.
