January 2018 PLUG meeting - CANCELLED!

Welcome to 2018, everybody! An interesting PLUG meeting had been planned for this evening, but in light of today's weather conditions, I'm declaring a SNOW DAY!

I've heard first-hand reports of drivers this morning on Highway 115 doing 20 km/h in heavy snow conditions, with more snow to come through today and into tomorrow. In this situation, if you don't have to be out there in the weather and on the roads for a very good reason, please, stay indoors! I love falling snow, SO picturesque - from the OTHER side of the glass! <^8#

We're passing the orb & sceptre - please wait...!!

As we head into the fall season, much is happening, both in our club and the GNU/Linux community. As I transition into the role of president, I look forward to an on-going evolution in GNU/Linux software, with an eye primarily toward new users who find other mainstream operating systems too cumbersome and/or intrusive. As many of you will know, I have strong opinions about that, and my focus is always on choice and transparency. Here's to a new year, with a very special congratulations to our outgoing president emeritus, Jason Wallwork, who I'm sure will continue to bring his wealth of knowledge and experience to the benefit of our membership. I hope to bring as much enthusiasm and information along with my experience to this role as Jason has for a very, very long time.

October PLUG Meeting: Opera & Encrypting Email: Monday, October 2, 2017

THIS COMING MONDAY...

Opera & Encrypting Email with PGP

VP Bill Hopkins will be presenting the Opera browser, a multi-platform browser that is very fast and light and has extra features not commonly seen in browsers. Member Jason Wallwork will be following this up with a presentation on how to encrypt your email using PGP.

Date: Monday, October 2, 2017 - 7 PM

Location: 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.

The raffle has been discontinued. However, you can still get a free book of your choice from O'Reilly by writing a short review afterward. Use the contact form if you'd like to do that.

Membership, although voluntary, is encouraged. Membership fees cover our room rental costs and any surplus is used to treat members during the Christmas Pizza party. A membership is only $25 a year, a fee that hasn't changed since 2000. You can pay via cheque, cash or Paypal. Membership also gives you the opportunity to review Linux-related or other computer books, and bragging rights.

We have a Linux magazine swap at each meeting. Bring in recent Linux magazines (within the last year) to trade with or give to other members.

After the meeting, everyone is invited to Tim Horton's on MONAGHAN ROAD (just a stone's throw north of Lansdowne). They have free wireless along with their treats and refreshments.

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.
