Netflix on Linux is now a lot easier

Previously you had to do a bit of work to get Netflix working in Linux that involved downloading WINE and Silverlight and so on. Now you can do it with as little as a user-agent change (assuming you use Chrome). I just tried it in Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon and it worked perfectly. You will require the Chrome browser for this to work. PC World tells you how here:

September PLUG Meeting

Shell Fun

Jason Wallwork will be showing off the Linux shell, also referred to as the terminal or console. The shell gives you access to various commands and utilities that you can run without ever reaching for the mouse. Linux is great as a graphical desktop but if all you do is is run graphical commands, you're only scratching the surface of Linux. Real power lies in in the shell. It sounds ominous but it's actually quite easy. Even beginners can learn it and our president will show you how. There will be lots of times for questions along the way. Bring your laptop with any version of Linux and follow along!
