The next meeting of the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Linux User Group 
will be next Saturday, 15th March 2017, from 13:00 to 18:00+, at Broad Oak 
Sports and Social Club.

We shall have our usual Bring a Box meeting.  As it is Easter Saturday, rumour 
has it that the Easter Bunny might take an hour or two off from organising 
egg hunts at National Trust properties, to come on a brief visit.  We shall 
have our usual plate of sandwiches for those who are actually hungry!

The Raspberry Pi project may finally take off :-), and anyway I am asking 
people to bring their Raspberry Pi's and show us what they are doing with 
them.  Two people have already agreed, so come on the rest of you!  Let us 
have a Raspberry Pi fest. :-)  To which end, HDMI cables and HDMI to VGA 
adapters requested, along with any adapters people can dream up, just in 

A short talk on writing/designing a GUI using C++ is in preparation and may 
have matured for next Saturday – I am hoping so.

More short or lightening talks requested/welcomed.  

I shall have a “new” netbook, currently burdened with Windows 7, on which I am 
aiming to put Stretch, perhaps without systemd, and TDE 14, and possibly also 
Mate.  As the donor pointed out to me, I am not inconvenienced by the demise 
of Unity as I wouldn't have been putting it on the netbook anyway.

Hopefully other things will be happening, and there will be much Linux/Open 
Source/IT chat and information exchange.  

If you haven't been before, give us a try.  We are a friendly bunch and 
welcome new visitors and long-standing attenders alike.  Experience not
