About the Geek-O-Meter
For each presentation, we try to rate the "geek level" necessary to
understand the topic. While an overall rating isn't perfect, it will
at least give newbies an idea on which topics will be beyond them, and
which topics will bore the kernel hackers out there.
These topics are for newbies to the realm of Linux, Unix, GNU and
Open Source. They include things like how to use basic applications.
If you have a general understanding of computers, these talks should be
easy to comprehend, yet still be interesting.
Topics on installation, and topics which discuss mathematical algorithms
or other basic computer sciency things.
Folks with lots of experience with GNU/Linux, computers in general, math, and
other sciences will be comfortable at these talks.
Meetings with no scheduled topic, or officer meetings,
which have no particular geek level.
The meeting topic has not been scheduled yet. When the topic is announced,
this rating will change to one of the above.

If you maintain a Users Group website, feel free to use the
Geek-O-Meter rating system yourself! A link to LUGOD.org'd be nice
in return. Also, for kicks, please let
Bill know you're using
the graphics, so he can see.
