Other Business

  • News
    • There's a LUG in Lincoln that's active, but is concerned about dropping attendance. If you, or someone you know, is near Lincoln, please check it out: http://sites.google.com/site/lincolnlug/
    • SacBLUG, a BSD and Linux Users Group, has formed in Sacramento. It meets monthly at SMUD's offices, and is focused on system administration. (It also has a lively IRC channel.) Learn more at: http://www.sacblug.org/.
    • Harold Lee from LUGOD will be helping present a UNIX Tutorial with the CS Club at UC Davis. For more, see: http://daviscsclub.com/.
    • Davis People's Free School is re-forming, and interested in working with LUGOD to do some classes. As we learn more, we'll post calls for volunteers.
  • Raffle — We gave away three books from O'Reilly: Being Geek, Cooking for Geeks and Autotools, and a 4GB USB flash drive from Edge Tech Corp.
  • Financial Report — $25.00 voluntary dues were collected tonight.
    Our previous treasurer, Henry House, received our letter regarding our deadline to receive LUGOD's missing financial paperwork. He responded, but has yet to get the paperwork to us (our deadline for giving up was today's meeting). At this point, we will move forward under the assumption that the paperwork is lost forever. LUGOD's officers will hold an officer meeting soon to discuss the next steps.
  • Becoming a UC Davis "Campus Affiliate Group" — No report.
  • Explorit membership — LUGOD has donated $75 to Explorit. (They received it and give their thanks.)


  • Joe Eager of the Blender "bmesh" project was scheduled to speak about "Overcoming repeated failure and attaining success in an open source project" but failed to make it to tonight's meeting.

    In lieu of that, we opened the floor for discussions. Charley Shattuck talked about Color Forth and Greenarrays.com, and Brian Lavender demonstrated Lazarus, an IDE and RAD tool for developing object-oriented Pascal applications.
