  • Linux Demo Day - Linux Demo Day is on Feburary 17th. We're waiting for 'swag' to arrive from LDD sponsors. We're also waiting to hear back from Border's Books in Davis to find out if we can set up a demo there.

Other Business

  • Financial Report - We collected $33.35 in voluntary dues.

  • Installfest - The last installfest was on 1/23/2000. 25-30 people attended. VA might be donating a hub, cables and network cards to help with IF's. The next Installfest will be on Sunday, February 20th from 10am until 6pm in EUII Room 1127 at UC Davis. Contact Pete Salzman to RSVP.

  • Software Development Conference and Expo 2000 - SDExpo sent us four nice t-shirts which we handed out, as well as pamphlets describing SDExpo, which will be held from March 19th, 2000 to March 24th, 2000 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose.

    Not only that, but LUGOD members are eligable for a free tickets to the expo, and discounts on the conference packages! Contact Bill Kendrick to pick up a pamphlet and discount flyer (before March 1st!)

  • LUGOD Server - Pete Salzman suggested that LUGOD set up its own server on which we could mirror Linux software (ie, for InstallFests), place our website and mailing lists, and provide shell accounts to LUGOD members.

    Brian Lavendar of SacLUG volunteered to donate hardware, Marianne Waage volunteered to install an OS. We just need to decide if we want to do this, where to put it, and who will administer it.

  • Game Design Club - Bill Kendrick (and other LUGOD members and other folks) are going to start a video/computer game design club in Davis. If you'd like to join or help out, e-mail him at bill@newbreedsoftware.com.


  • Mike Simons presented part 1 of a 2-part talk on using GDB, the GNU Debugger
