Belatedly, here is an invitation for the next Portsmouth and South East 
Hampshire Linux Users Group.  This coming Saturday, 20th May 2017 from 13:00 
to 18:00+ in the Broad Oaks Social Club, Hilsea.


I haven't managed to get anything specific arranged, but that makes it an 
ideal opportunity for an install fest and update session.  Anyone who would 
like to bring a desktop for attention, be it minor (e.g. security updates 
only please.  It is running well, and if it ain’t broke I don't want to fix 
it) or major (please help me wipe the hard drive and install a new OS).  Help 
is at hand for carrying things up from the car park.  If anyone needs to find 
a monitor, mouse and keyboard on arrival, he or she has only to ask.  
Problematic laptops welcome too, of course, or even shiny new top-of-the 
range laptops, just to show them off.  And, it goes without saying, to show 
off the capabilities of Open Source.  It is a long time since anyone showed 
off BSD.  Any offers?

I myself have several projects I may bring.  More in a separate email.

Sandwiches, tech talk and excellent company guaranteed as usual, of course.

Advance notification for July:  Jeffrey Best has kindly offered to talk 
on "Database Migration".  

A couple of other people have said that they will speak some time, but I have 
no details yet.  Other offers?

Today (17th) is apparently the 115th anniversary of the discovery of the 
Antikythera mechanism.
I feel that we should mark this somehow.  There is nothing new under the sun.
