Linux in the Park 2006

ten foot tux

I've received an exciting email from Canada this weekend:

Hi free-penguinistas !
My names David Patrick, and I'm the head instigator at linuxcaffe.ca. We recently hosted the Toronto Linux Users Groups annual Linux In The Park event, and to kick it up good, I made a ten foot tux, using your pattern !
There were a couple of obvious modifications (sleeve for turbofan, exhaust holes) and a couple of subtler changes (head rounding, tummy-and-hip tucks, anchor points) but all in all, we were able to go from design to completion in under four days, thanks to your fine work.
Being a GPL adherent, we will be releasing all of our modifications, along with detailed instruction on preferred materials, how to layout/ enlarge the pattern, and assembly tips. I'm hoping you might find a spot on your site to post 'em.
for a peek at the (untrimmed) ten-foot-tux, check out Flikr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/ten-foot-tux

We will find a spot to post them indeed! Respect!
