On the second Thursday of each month, the SGVLUG (San Gabriel Valley Linux Users Group) meets at Caltech, usually for a Linux-themed presentation. Afterwards, the meeting moves to Burger Continental for dinner, discussions, and other fun. On Thursday I attended this month’s SGVLUG meeting, which was about LaTeX. This month the Burger Continental dinner doubled as a Slashdot party, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Slashdot. The party broke up around 11pm. The next day, I learned from an email that Burger Continental caught fire less than two hours after the party and suffered extensive damage to the front. WTF! Fortunately, nobody was injured, and Burger Continental plans to reopen soon.
