Having asked various LUGs to advertise our next meeting I think it is only
fair that I pass on the following.

This one is from Sheffield LUG.

Have fun,

There is plenty of room for parking.  If you aren't coming over by

 the local tram..


On the 12th of March we will be having a special one off event which
will take place at Sheffield Hallam University, Adsetts Centre, room

Prof Pat Stakem will describe his life's work on automated unmanned
space platforms and space exploration.  A complete history of
computing in space.  Of particular interest is his work on Flight
Linux.  You can view more about this at...


It took two years to get him to come along and give a lecture.
 Please don't miss out on this one.  Well worth a trip to SHU and

You can now download posters for the event.  These are in compressed
postscript format.  Compressed with bzip2.  Also in PNG format.  You
can print the PNG ones with Gimp as A3 or A4 format.  You might also
be able to print these from your browser. The PS ones, don't know
about these.  You might have to experiment a bit.  You'll probably
need a high resolution colour printer to reproduce these.  You might
also like to grab one to keep as a souvenir.

Hope we see you soon.
