Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our November  LUG meeting  at 6:30pm on Thursday, November 13th. Directions: When you arrive at Rasmussen College take the elevator to the third floor then turn right and walk straight into the meeting room (Boardroom).

Due to  a few presentation options being canceled at the last minute the November meeting will be devoted to discussing Linux in the News and helping people with their computer issues. It will be a little lighter then normal, but will still be fun.  If you come and you want to try an impromptu presentation please bring it along too!  Hope to see you all tomorrow!

The October  RRLug meeting had 11 members attending.  We met at Rasmussen @ 6:30pm, but shifted the meeting to a classroom in order to use a whiteboard. Next month we will again return to the boardroom! The meeting was a little unconventional in its approach, but we covered all the topics below:

  • SpeedTest – discuss a convenient tool for determining your current Internet connection speed.
  • Firefox Configuration Management Pt2 – Sam Williams finished discussing the newest changes in Firefox that help safeguard your configuration and settings.
  • Linux News – Discuss the general Linux news items from the past month.
  • Raspberry Pi B+ – Peter HedLund is going to bring his new Raspberry Pi B+. If  he gets a chance to work on it, he will  also have a touchscreen display that will mount on the PI.
  • Wubi installation – Peter Hedlund will also  discuss the issues he had with his recent Wubi upgrade of Ubuntu.
  • Linux Troubleshooting – Gary Melvin is going to bring a computer to the meeting to use in a discussion of troubleshooting techniques. The computer belongs to a friend and is dying after about an hour of disuse.

We had a really good meeting and wished more of the members had been able to attend.
