1999.11.01 Meeting Notes

Committee Reports

  • PPP How To - No change.

  • Resnet How To - No change.

  • Tax Exempt Status - No change. (Still waiting for results from IRS).

  • Farmer's Market - Last Saturday, LUGOD did NOT go to the Farmer's Market. We are looking for someone who is willing to coordinate LUGOD's booth at Farmer's Market (ie, plan then, coordinate transportation, etc.). If you are interested in becoming chair of the committee, contact Pete Salzman. We also need people interested in helping populate the booth (three people per market is optimal). Finally, a suitable method to block sky glare on the monitors would be very useful!

  • Ambassador to other LUGS - Chris DiBona of VA Linux Systems will be demonstrating his "organizer on steroids" at SacLUG on Wednesday. See www.saclug.org. SVLUG is meeting Wednesday.

  • Davis Community Network - No word as to when our next meeting with them to help install Linux will be. However, we will be meeting with them at 6:30pm on November 2, to plan a public "Linux Tutorial" class to be held on November 15th!

Other Business

  • Financial Report - We collected $61.25 in voluntary dues. Our account now holds $270.07.

  • T-Shirts - Evan came back with $8 as the cost for white T-Shirts and $9 for colored T-shirts, with single-colored logos on front and back. Popular vote has decided that Tux the Penguin and the acronym "LUGOD" will be on the front pocket position, and the LUGOD watertower logo and the name "Linux Users' Group of Davis" will be on the back. We will, however, accept entries for T-shirt designs, and vote for them at our November 15th meeting.

  • Install Fest - Last weekend's installfest in EUII went from 10am to 8:30pm. About 17 machines were brought in throughout the day, but three did not get Linux working on them (their owners were impatient to get helped). Most got RedHat installed. Even, Mike, Ajay and people from the UCD CS club where there. We need more people to help install, a coordinator for installfests, and a checklist for people to fill out so that helpers with certain skills can be best used. If interested in helping, e-mail the VOX mailing list.

  • Mad Bomber - Bill Kendrick showed off his new Linux game, Mad Bomber.


  • Pete Salzman once again did part 2 of his "Shell Scripting Basics" talk.
