1999.08.24 Meeting Notes

Committee Reports

  • PPP How To - Beau from UCD IT would like to have us test out our HOWTO using different systems. They are willing to link to our (as well as other user groups') "howto"-style documentation.

  • Resnet How To - See PPP How To above.

  • Tax Exempt Club Status - The bylaws were passed out. Article 4 of the Constitution has been striken, as Article 1 of the Bylaws states the same facts, and with more detail. The bylaws have now been ratified. Both votes were unanimous.

  • Farmer's Market - Hans Uhlig has taken over this committee for Peter Salzman.

Other Business

  • A LUGOD IRC channel has been set up. Connect to channel "#lugod" on the server "irc.lugod.org"

  • A new mailing list has been created, "vox-announce". Subscribe by sending a message to "vox-announce-request@lists.lugod.org" with the word "subscribe" in the body of the message.

  • $27.50 of voluntary dues were collected.

  • Remington Stone has donated a large number of CD's to the LUGOD library.

  • LUGOD Logo - A tiny group met at the meeting early and decided that the LUGOD watertower logo should have a consistent font for the word "LUGOD", to help aesthetically improve the image and make less confusion between us and UC Davis.

  • A unanimous vote has decided that we will proceed with LUGOD t-shirts by creating a web-based order system to determine how many people are interested in having a shirt. The cost will be calculated, and people will be charged. Then, t-shirts will be ordered from a printing shop. (This is due to the fact that we need to be careful gaining or losing too much money by selling things, to remain a Tax Exempt Club, as well as the fact that t-shirts cost different prices depending on how many are ordered at a time.)

  • LUGOD has begun talking with the Davis Community Network ("DCN"), who runs the cities network and provides network access to a number of organizations. DCN also salvages and refurbishes computers and donates them to schools and libraries in the county. They're planning on using Linux, and would appreciate help from LUGOD. (Helpers have been offered free Internet access from Ohmsoft.)

  • Bill Kendrick briefly demoed the new version of his "BoboBot" game for Linux, and pleaded for help with art.


  • Zach White demonstrated setting up and testing firewalling and IP masquerading on a Linux box.
