  • 'Art of Unix Programming' be Eric S. Raymond has been published, and is available for free off the 'net.
  • Yolo Amateur Radio meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month, and they'd be interested in having a presentation on Linux, and/or presenting at a LUGOD meeting!
  • Silicon Valley LUG meets in San Jose tomorrow. "System Administrators are People Too"
  • North Bay LUG meets in Sebastopol next Tuesday. LUGOD's Bill Kendrick will be doing a presentation on The Gimp.
  • Ryan Castelluci will be demonstrating TiVo hacking at the next LUGOD meeting, on September 15th.
  • AMD will be visiting LUGOD to talk about AMD64 at the October 7th meeting. NOTE: Due to elections, we will not be meeting at the library! Hopefully we can meet at UC Davis.

Project Reports

  • Demo - No demo scheduled.

  • Installfests - The next Installfest will be Sunday, September 21st.

  • LERT - No recent LERT activity.

  • Library - Nothing to report.

Other Business

  • Projector - No news on the projector.

  • Geek Swap - We earned $256.75 at the Geek Swap in early August. We had to spend $60 to dispose of some left over hardware, so we earned a total of $196.75.

  • ISSA Conference - We've been invited by the local ISSA chapter to have a Linux booth at the ISSA conference (security-related) in November at the Sacramento Convention Center. Mike Simons still needs to contact them to confirm.

  • Tux Paint Demo - Bill Kendrick will be demonstrating his open source 'Tux Paint' program for kids at the Davis Food Co-Op on Sunday, October 26th. He's looking for people to help burn copies of Tux Paint on CDROM, and people to lend their time and computers for kids to play, hands-on. E-mail him at bill@newbreedsoftware.com if you can help.

  • Financial Report - $29.19 in voluntary dues were collected. LUGOD has a grand total of $2079.40 in the bank (until we buy a projector).


  • Dr. M. A. Sridhar from Ampersand Corp. demonstrated zeroCode, their browser-accessible software development environment for generating scalable, high-performance, database-backed web application, with little or not programming effort.
