Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our September  LUG meeting  at 6:30pm on Thursday, September 12th. Don’t forget that we are now meeting in the Board Room. Directions: Take the elevator to the third floor then turn right and walk straight into the room. Please try to avoid food or drink in the new room.

  • Linux / Programming Debugging – Sam Williams is going to discuss the best way to start preparing to debug system or programming issues in a Linux environment.
  • Security 101 – We are going to be watching a couple of over-view videos on the issue of data and system security. It should be entertaining and useful for everyone.
  • Current News – We will have a discussion on some of the more interesting Linux/FOSS news items from the past month.

Hope to see you all there!

The August RRLug meeting had 15 people attending.  We met at the usual time of  6:30pm in the Rasmussen College Boardroom. There were a few new faces in the crowd tonight. As usual we had several different presentations on the agenda:

  • Ubuntu PPA System – Sam Williams  discussed the Ubuntu PPA ecosystem and provided some examples of how it could be used to improve your overall computer experience.
  • FinalTerm – working from the PPA discussion,  Sam  demonstrated how to install the alpha release of FinalTerm and then preceded to demonstrate some of the new features that could ultimate make this a very unique and useful terminal program. Again, it is alpha release so there are a number of features that need work, however.
  • Security 101 – We discussed some additional security tools and concerns that would make using Linux a bit safer. Hopefully, next month there will be a historic video presented to further illustrate some of these principles.
  • Current News – Towards the end of the meeting we discussed some of the more interesting Linux/FOSS news items from the past month.

It was a great meeting and everyone seemed to leave with just a little bit more information under their belts! Look forward to seeing you all at the September meeting!
