===== To LUGOC & SACLUG members:
Hi :)    Anyone care to get a carpool together & come on down?

845  AM  Meet at Davis
900  AM  Leave Davis
1000 AM  Arrive Berkeley

It's truly almost exactly 60 minutes Davis to Berkeley.
Hope to see you.  :)

And, join with us online using VOIP if you can't carpool.  :)
Note: IIRC, 2 people joined using VOIP from Davis when I set up the
BALUG test VOIP meeting netcast about a month ago, using the same VOIP
system we use for BTIP - so you all have already got some members
experienced with this.  :)

U C BERKELEY LOCATION ATTENDEES: 1) PLEASE RSVP TO ME! THANKS!
2) NEW BERKELEY MEETING LOCATION THIS MONTH!!  TO BE DETERMINED.

Post CARPOOL messages on that list! :)
3) No POTLUCK this month. I'm waiting till we get VOIP perfected.


==  TALK TOPICS, PROGRAMMING PARTY, INSTALLFEST, DISCUSSION  ==
Two great TALK TOPICS this month, one on the Asterisk Telephone/VOIP
system, and the other on GPUs -  Graphics Processing Units (the hardware
in graphics cards) which can do general purpose computing.

The directed PROGRAMMING PARTY will be to investigate Asterisk & Ekiga
with a goal to work on improving their technology for VOIP for the
BerkTIP-Global meeting. Undirected = work on whatever you're interested
in - what _is_ that?  Post a message to the BTIP-Global list.

INSTALLFEST: Maybe several laptop installs/upgrades in Berkeley, KUbuntu
& RH likely.  What are _you_ looking to do?  Post a message to the
BTIP-Global list.

DISCUSSION ITEMS:  Lots of exciting things to talk about: New AMD Phenom
II out Jan 8th, 64bit GUI distros, Firefox multi instance. Is OpenOffice
in poor development shape?  What's the best File System?  Intel hires
Alan Cox.  BTIP VOIP improvement features.  And, planning for the 2009
year - What would be fun to try to accomplish this year? International
members?  Better VOIP?  Video conferencing? Live talks?

=====  3) ProgrammingParty = VOIP
We'll work on learning about the Ekiga & Asterisk software. Goal is to
improve the SW or config to improve aspects of VOIP for the BTIP meeting
- more end user info, details about the connection, communication
between client & server, & server admin interface.

=====  4) INSTALLFEST
In Berkeley we'll likely be working to figure out why a Dell Vostro 1 yr
old with a new KUbuntu 8.04 (I chose that over 8.10 to avoid KDE 4 till
its got more bugs out & more features in) is locking up, in fact might
have messed up the booting SW, cause it hangs booting linux now, but
boots the preinstalled-nonfreesw OS.  Possible suspects: bad WiFi
driver, bad NVidia HW or driver, perhaps leading to bad disk writes. Or,
maybe bad disk or controller or MBoard?

IF item 2: is a possible Ubuntu Intrepid install help.  IF item 3: is a
possible distro upgrade on a 5+yo IBM thinkpad with a several years old
RH.  The owner knows in the past there have been problems with the power
management or battery driver, & hates dealing with the details of having
to investigate & locate a driver, then patch & compile a custom kernel
to make it work.
