Linux Users' Group of Davis - "LUGOD 2010.09.20 Meeting Notes"
2010.09.20 Meeting Notes
Explorit Nature Center
- Installfests —
The next Installfest will be this Saturday, September 25th,
from 10am-4pm at N Street Cohousing (thanks to Dan Fiske for
the venue and Alex Mandel for coordinating). The discussion
topic will be "Virtual Machines."
- LERT —
- Library —
The portion of our now-defunct Lending Library that the
CSU Bakersfield CS dept. wanted is still in Bill Kendrick's
possession. Dr. Melissa Danforth said she'll be in the
area, at LISA in San Jose, in November. If anyone from LUGOD
is willing to take the books to her then, please let us know!
- News —
- Lance, a first-time visitor to LUGOD, happens to also be a Haiku
user, and moved to Davis one day ago! He found out about us, and
tonight's Haiku talk, thanks to DavisWiki.org!
- The Davis branch of the Yolo County Library reopens in December,
and LUGOD may begin meeting back there as soon as January.
- Financial Report —
$40.50 voluntary dues were collected tonight.
After many failed meet-ups, a letter has been written and sent,
'proof-of-delivery', to our previous treasurer, Henry House, asking for
him to provide LUGOD's financial paperwork by mid-October. (If he doesn't
or cannot, then at least we have proof that we tried to get it from him.)
- Becoming a UC Davis "Campus Affiliate Group" —
- Explorit membership —
Greg is ready to send a $75 donation to Explorit, but a correction needs
to be made to last meeting's minutes, which Bill will make.
- Scott McCreary & Urias McCullough, of the Haiku Project, came
to talk about and demonstrate the Haiku operating system (and talk about
BeOS, which it seeks to reimplement).
