Next Meeting:

  • [geek:1] Monday, April 17, 2017, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
    Bill Kendrick - "Back to the Terminal"
    Location: Explorit Nature Center (5th Street)
    3141 5th St., Davis CA 95618

    Graphical User Interfaces, popularized by with Apple's Macintosh in 1984, and Microsoft's Windows 3.1 in 1992 and Windows95 in 1995, have been a great boon to multimedia creation and consumption -- photography, video, desktop publishing, web browsing, and more. However, the venerable terminal is still there, ready to tackle important tasks -- not just on Linux, but also under macOS / Mac OS X, and Windows!

    In this talk, we'll discuss some interesting tools that can grant access to things you'd not expect be available on low-powered, non-graphical systems (for example, 30+ year old 8-bit home computers like Ataris, Apple IIs, and Commodore 64s!)

    Email, Twitter, online chat (IRC, Slack, and various Instant Messengers), web browsing, word processing, spreadsheets, and even multitasking, are all possibilities!

    Bill Kendrick is an avid 'Mutt' email client user, Atari 8-bit computer fanatic, and started his career doing web development via an MSDOS IBM PS/2 with a 19.2Kbps dialup modem, running 'Lynx' browser remotely on his school's SunOS workstation. His first computer with a GUI was a Pentium running RedHat Linux. Shortly after getting it, he helped co-found LUGOD.
