Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our December  LUG meeting  at 6:30pm on Thursday, December 11th. 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). Tonight’s presentations are:

  • Gawk ( Tracy Henness) – Learn how to use an extremely powerful Linux/Unix programming language for your text processing needs that is available as part of the base operating system. You will all find this discussion extremely useful.
  • Education Uses of F/OSS – Excellent video detailing how one school is seriously  putting the power of open source to use for saving money and simultaneously empowering the entire student body. A fascinating treatment
  • Linux News – We will discuss the highlights of the last month in Linux news.

Hope to see you all there!
