Copying the web-site I though you might like to know that:


Next Meeting: Wednesday 5th March 2003

We have a talk from Nottingham City Council (Suse Press Release) for our March meeting.

* Richard Heggs is giving a presentation on how Nottingham City Council switched 6,000 of their users from a Windows based email system that was crashing a lot to Suse Mail (the Horde webmail suite running on GNU/Linux).

* This talk will cover the problems and successes they've encountered and is recommended for business individuals considering Linux as well as our regular members.

This is a free event held in association with Nottingham Trent University's School of Engineering at their Maudslay Lecture Theatre, in the centre of Nottingham (see: Map 1: No.3 and Map 2: No.12).

The talk will start at 7:00pm, (rather than our usual time of 7.30pm), aiming to finish around 8:00pm with drinks afterwards.

Get your A4 poster here: (29kB).


As it says the talk is free (that way we get the room free) but as with the lasttalk donations will be gratefully received.

The poster is for those who are willing and able to print (it comes out fine in greyscale but I've not tried it on a 9-pin dot-matrix) and advertise with.

You my also notice we have Dave Jones (kernel-hacker , 2.5 release co-ordinator and no doubt much much more) penciled in for April or May.  This should be fun and we hope to confirm it soon.

Have fun,
