Greetings All,

Thanks to Roger for the good overview of printing under linux at the last
meeting. His presentation (fuller than his talk) is on the web site.

The next meeting is the last in the "Introductory" series we planned.
Back to a hodge-podge in July.

This Monday we have Aaron doing an introduction to editors, covering the
main 2, vi and emacs, and Dave is doing an Intro to OpenOffice.org
the "Free" office suite. Should be good.

I'll give my apologies now. I won't be there. I'm on holiday from this
w/e. I've been trying to plan the July meeting, and despite loads of
offers over xmas new year, things haven't come together for the July
meeting for all sorts of reasons. But we do have Smylers doing a talk on
"Power Shell Usage: 'Bash' Tips & Tricks" to continue the CLI/Shell theme.

Afterward the meeting, down to the Victoria Pub for chat and a drink.
Everyone is welcome, and it is a great opportunity to tap people for
information and help.

                 Why Text Editors are Good for Your Health

           A brief overview of what OpenOffice offers for GUI-based
          preparation of ad-hoc, short-life documents in which visual
          presentation is a high priority, i.e. where mark-up and DTP
                   are overkill and plain text is insufficient.
