Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our February LUG meeting  at 6:30pm on Thursday, February 14th.

  • Tonight’s meeting will consist mostly of informal discussion due to the fact that our turn-out will be lower because of Valentines Day.  So if  Valentine festivities aren’t on your  agenda today please come out and we will make an evening of it.
  •  Raspberry Pi / Pi Cobbler – Peter Hedlund is going to demonstrate some of the things that can be done using the Pi Cobbler (GPIO breakout board) and the Raspberry Pi. If the attendance numbers are lower Peter promised to revisit this in March so you don’t have to worry about missing it!

FYI, if you are seriously dating or married make sure you get prior approval to attend. RRLug doesn’t want to promote any type of relationship discord beyond what is already endured being in a relationship with a computer geek!!! 🙂 If you can’t make it we totally understand and will hopefully see you in March!

The January  RRLug meeting went really well. We had  9 people attending as the year got off to a good start ! We met at 6:30pm  at Rasmussen College (rm 403).  Tonight there were two presentations:

  • Favorite Linux Commands – Sam Williams started out the new year discussions with several of his favorite Linux commands.
  • Sublime Text 2 – Peter Hedlund gave a great presentation on the relatively new text editor Sublime Text 2. Its not free, but its cheap, has a great deal of unique functionality, and it also has a vim compatibility mode called “vintage”.
  • Enlightenment Desktop – Sam Williams continued his demonstration of Enlightenment 17 release ZERO. Last month you could see that the desktop could easily be used on lower resource hardware, particularly on a Raspberry Pi. This month we discussed a little more areas of configuration.

The meeting was fun and there were many interesting questions asked. I suspect there will be several instances of E17 spinning up on a system near you soon and all running Sublime Text 2:-) Thanks Peter for a great presentation!
