PLUG Meeting - Monday, November 4, 2019 (THIS MONDAY!)

THIS COMING MONDAY...

Peppermint & Remote Access

Peppermint is a Linux distro that is built to be web-centric and easy for both advanced and new users. It uses a highly customized LXDE desktop that is productive and beautiful. Jason Wallwork will be presenting the latest release, version 10. Jason will also be discussing how to remotely access both Linux and Windows boxes.

Date: Monday, November 4, 2019 - 7 PM

Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side or in visitors parking. 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.

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 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. If not taken, please bring them back home for recycling.

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 will continue as long as their is sufficient interest. Please check the forums for the sign-up list. We've had the three same people for most meetings so we could use more attendees. So if you're interested, please attend and let us know you're coming. We're a friendly group and talk about everything Linux and beyond. Come and show your hardware!

April PLUG Meeting - Two factor Authentication ***CANCELLED***

The PLUG meeting scheduled for tonight has been **CANCELLED* with apologies for the inconvenience. Jason has been fighting water in the ear this weekend and it's particularly bad today.

For anybody that doesn't see this message until after arriving at Applewood, proceed to the Tim Horton's at Monaghan & Lansdowne.

June 2018 PLUG Meeting: Monday, June 4, 2018: TOMORROW!

Sorry about the short notice guys, but we are having a PLUG meeting TOMORROW (Monday, June 4, 2018) with some cool topics from Bill Hopkins and Mike Fox. And it's the last meeting before the summer. PLUG goes on break so there won't be any monthly meetings in July and August but MUGs will still continue subject to interest.

Bill Hopkins will be delivering a basic talk on the motion detecting software program, Motion, running on a Raspberry Pi with a USB connected webcam. The video output from the webcam is viewed from a remote computer screen, using a local wifi network.

Mike Fox will be presenting openSUSE, a popular, non-Debian based distro that uses the rpm package manager. Following up on Jason’s excellent KDE presentation last month, Mike will present the KDE plasma version of openSUSE Tumbleweed, which is a rolling distro. He will show some of the desktop customizations possible with this desktop environment.

Date: Monday, June 4, 2018 - 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.

We'll also have pizza available. Please bring $5 for covering the costs of pizza and pop.

We had a good number of membership registrations last month. Thank you! We could use a few more though to cover our costs for the year so please consider registering as a member if you haven't already. The cost is only $25 a year payable by cheque to PLUG or cash, a fee that hasn't changed since 2000.

See you there!
