JohnW's home for the elderly (PCs, not people!). Thanks to Harry for a splendid new roadside sign to attract Linux users and penguin fanciers!

Topics from the After Lunch Menu:

  • Starter: Discussion about SLUG Meetings @ Surrey Uni

All were in favour of trying to progress this further. Bill has put in time and effort on exploring this and other options and those present were very appreciative of this.

Possibly teaming up with the Guildford BCS group would be a way forward.
  • Optional side order: Clive's whistle-stop tour of the latest and greatest in the IT industry

  • LIVE Ubuntu boot
  • VMware Player install
  • RH8 DVD sets giveaway

  • Main course: BOXES
