Meeting Topic For November? EDS Meeting Space Comments?
We had about 20 folks show this time and quite a few new faces I hadn’t seen before. I would estimate if everyone showed that attend regularly we'd have about 40 or so people in total that could possibly show each meeting...almost the limits of the room. To much testosterone though ;> Michael has mentioned to the board that that he'd be willing to give yet another presentation...this time on ubuntu - http://www.ubuntulinux.org/ See also http://linux.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/09/27/201202 A couple other topics that have been kicked around on this discussion board are LTSP and Linux Certification. Also at the meeting last night some other topics were proposed, so please post the details here so everyone can comment on them. Thanks. Also, please comment on the EDS facility last night and anything we could do to make it better. I will look into getting another datashow, or ask how that one actually works??? Why it was coming up in 640x480 and then sometimes working correctly was a puzzle. My comments on the meeting space: 1. It has everything we need I think, although security is a bit of a hassle. Internet worked well, space is decent sized, free parking, etc. 2. Sorry, but I don't think Pizza is an option. My comments on the meeting/topics: 1. Although there was some good “discussion,” during and after the presentation perhaps we should have a regular agenda item that opens the floor to people who have linux (or related) questions or that need help on something or what not. 2. I would rather not see "another" "distro" presentation. We have had several presentation on this vein ... General distro topic of pros/cons, Fedora Core 2, Live distros, etc. Although it is interesting to see them I think it would be better to have something more in depth on a particular piece of software/server or a particular piece of a single distro...we had a discussion on debian's apt package once and I think we taked about XFree86 once, but something along those lines would be time better spent. Okay, feel free to hack away at my comments and we'll get agreement on a topic for Nov.
