1999.07.23 Meeting Notes

We (although "we" turned out to be very few people, what a shock!) met at Lamppost Pizza in Davis. Mike Simons was supposed to be guest speaker, but due to a. small attendance and b. the room not being set up well, he was postponed to the next meeting.

Committee Reports

  • Ambassador to other LUGs - Mike took over in lieu of Joe (take a wild guess what happened to him) and did the announcements. SVLUG meets on the first Wednesday of each month. August 10-12 is the Linux Expo in the San Jose Convention Center, to which we can get in free when provided with a flyer that Mike can get ahold of. Anyone who wishes to go for the entire three days and not have to keep driving home is welcome to crash at Joe's (apparently very large) place- his home is open to approximately ten people. SacLUG meets the second Wednesday of each month, and they had an installfest last week or so.

  • PPP How To - Not done yet.

  • Tax Exempt Club Status - "My report can be summarized as "Oops." Eventually we will probably need to vote on whether or not we're willing to spend $150 on becoming tax-exempt or not.

  • Logo Committee - Bill's water tower drawing won with 8 votes. Pete's penguin was runner-up with seven, and the penguin silhouette and the bicycle non-drawing were close behind.

Other Business

  • Financial Report- After dues, we have $210.
  • Linux Emergency Response Team- $5-$15 voluntary donations (on a sliding scale) will be asked for for each LERT member that goes to help someone. We need to talk to Bob Scofield about coming up with a waiver. Pete asked for volunteers to join the team, more are needed. Those interested can contact Pete in e-mail or at a meeting.


  • Mike Simons's strace talk has been moved to the next meeting, so we didn't have one.
