Surrey -- General Linux/Unix community List


About Surrey
English (USA)

Welcome to the Surrey Linux mailing list. The list is a general discussion list for those with an interest in Linux computing in the Surrey area, although there are members world wide and a broad range of experience. So if you want to know more about Linux this is a good place to ask questions.

You may also wish to visit the Surrey LUG website.

Please note that we do not accept job adverts on this list, except by active members of the list who have been members for at least three months, and even then no more than one such post every three months is permitted and such jobs must be Linux-related, local to Surrey, and preferably include salary expectation. Such emails must have a subject starting "[JOB]".

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Surrey Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
