Bring-A-Box, Saturday 11th November 2017, Royal Oak

Copyright Paul E Smith and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons LicenceAnother successful meeting, if rather cozy, with an area reserved for us with a table for 12 at the Royal Oak.  Priscilla and John came with a Thunderbird problem, quickly solved.  Mike had a tiny group of three components to be fitted together and soldered. QA was done under a bright photographic floodlight.  And Halina installed dictionaries for multiple languages in LibreOffice.

We didn't resolve a UEFI BIOS problem on his laptop for Mike though.  Food was good and reasonably priced.

Meeting at Royal Oak, Nov 2017

We have regular sessions on the second Saturday of each month. Bring a 'box', bring a notebook, bring anything that might run Linux, or just bring yourself and enjoy socialising/learning/teaching or simply chilling out!

This month's meeting is at the Royal Oak Pub in Pirbright, Surrey.

New members are very welcome. We're not a cliquey bunch, so you won't feel out of place! Usually between 15 and 30 people come along.



  • Time: noon - 5pm
  • Location: Royal Oak Pub, Pirbright, Surrey GU24 0DQ
  • Travel info and directions: Conveniently located .

The meeting will be in one of the many alcoves in the pub, we don't have a function room booked. Look for a group of happy people with a laptop or two and perhaps a Tux mascot! Wifi will be available, but there may not be much bandwidth, so get your updates done beforehand.

Parking at the front and rear of the pub.
