Time flies and there's much new stuff to try. There's Christmas soon
We're nearly off the end of out events calender. So this a Call For
What do people want next?
And at what level (beginner, noobie, user, expert, hack)?
I'm about to book for the next event:
01 Dec - Linux 'Fix-It' Evening
Now is the time to make the Penguin work!
Venue: Somewhere with lots of sockets!!! And easy parking to offload and
A chance to share and exchange ideas, problems, fixes, for anything and
everything Linux. Or just bring along your hardware for expert help for
installing Linux or whatever Open Source software.
This is intended as an open free-for-all to exchange hands-on help or
show off whatever is interesting. As with the awareness days, it may
even descend into a mini lan-slaughter with Unreal Tournament 2004!
Myself and Duncan(?) can bring along a switch or two for the lan.
How many should we expect with machines?
For: install, fixing, demo, show-off, or lan-wars?
The Christmas "Linux Format" mag has just arrived. Related bits are two
excellent cartoons for Mr 'DR' Rob from recent talks on p17. The LXF
folk also _REALLY_ liked Doom3, and UT2004 also. Our Anti-friend Billy
should also be cringing from various other articles in there. (:-))
Do folk want to meet up for a Christmas nosh?
Posh nosh or usual free-beer venue??
My ideas for next talks:
The nuts and bolts of Linux:
Linux the OS and Linux Freedoms explained
Linux medicine to knock you out! Anaesthesia monitoring in the Operating
Theatre (Nottingham QMC)

Recent examples of Disaster Recovery on PC systems. What worked and what
Compiling your own customised kernel
Network traffic and traffic control:
How to speed up your surfing while maxed out
Image editing applications

How to tweak your desktop
What would people like to talk about/demonstrate?

It's your group!
