Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our June Lug meeting  at 6:30pm on Thursday, July 12th. Currently, the agenda is as follows:

  • Arduino Development – Gary Melvin  has been busy with his Arduinos at work and at home lately. He’s going to provide a  discussion about using the Arduino with the LM34 thermal sensor and analog inputs.  He’ll demonstrate how to read  temperatures via the serial port, discuss his temperature web server project, then demonstrate using a TCP socket interface.  Gary might also discuss some of his other analog projects as well!
  • Raspberry Pi Demo – Peter Hedlund – With any luck Peter will be able to demonstrate his new Raspberry Pi and discuss some of the things he’s learned about it during the last month.
  • Linux System Monitoring Tools (Part 2) – Sam Williams – Same will complete his discussion of Linux command line performance monitoring tools
  • Linux News – Sam Williams

Hope to you all can come out and catch up.

We had a great meeting on June 14th.  We had a smaller number attending, but this is mostly due to people beginning to take their vacations.

  • Firefox Development Enhancements – Sam led the discussion on  the new developer features that are currently include in the newest builds of Firefox, from Firefox16+.
  • Linux System Monitoring Tools (Part 1) – we discussed three tools that can be used for doing performance monitoring from the command-line. These tools included top, atop, and htop. Next month we will delve into the issue more deeply with the introduction of 3 more tools.
  • Linux News – we discussed several of the big Linux stories from the past month.
