PLUG is on Summer Break

PLUG is on summer hiatus. Monthly meetings will resume Monday, September 14, 2015. We hope everybody can drop by one of the weekly MUGs that will continue on throughout the summer. Each MONDAY evening beginning at about 7 pm, everyone is welcome to hang out with other PLUGgers at Tim Hortons at Monaghan and Lansdowne Road. We call these nights PLUG MUGs. There is Free wireless Internet and no agenda; just friends hanging out, and talking about everything from Linux to X-rays. For more information on those, keep a watch in the Forums and please let us know if you're coming thought it's not strictly required.

Also, I'd love your suggestions on upcoming meetings and even whether you liked having coffee at the meeting. Is this something we should do every month? Let me know here:

Enjoy your summer and stay safe!

June 2015 PLUG Meeting THIS Monday: Pizza party

Mystery topic and PIZZA! Not sure what the topic will be at Monday's meeting? Only one way to find out - you're going to have to come. And if that wasn't enough there will be pizza! This is the last meeting before our summer break. Come and hang out with us. You know you want to. Even if you've never come out to a Linux meeting, drop by and break the ice. We don't bite. Oh yeah, and did I mention the Pizza? Please bring $10 for pizza or pay what you can which will include at minimum three slices of pizza, pop (diet and regular), coffee (yes, you read that right, Maxwell House) and assorted donuts. We'll order the pizza at the beginning of the meeting, member's choice.

Your membership cards for the 2015/2016 year will also be ready - laminated no less.

Monday, June 8, 2015 - 7 PM

We have a Linux magazine swap at each meeting. Bring your recently-read Linux magazines to trade with other members. And we have a draw for an e-book of the winner's choice. Members get double the entries.

Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side. Entrance is at the front of the building. From the front, go down the hall to the right, and enter the last door on the left.

After the meeting, everyone is invited to Tim Horton's on Lansdowne West (near Canadian Tire and Sobey's). They have free wireless in addition to their tasty doughnuts and coffee.

Hope you can make it!

Note: PLUG MUG nights continue every MONDAY night except the week of a regular PLUG meeting (as long as there is interest). Please check the forums for the weekly sign-up list.

May 2015 PLUG Meeting on Monday

Clonezilla

Bob Foley will be presenting on Clonezilla, a bootable backup program for backing up entire disks or individual partitions no matter the operating system or filesystem on them. It's a rock solid program that isn't hard to use once you've used it a few times and Bob will be your guide.

This meeting we're also doing membership renewals. So be sure to bring either $25 cash (exact change preferred) or a cheque made out to PLUG. Membership fees are used to pay for room rentals and to fund the December Christmas pizza party and you get double the chances to win a free book or ebook.
