Greetings SMLUG,

This is a notice for the upcoming meeting of the SMLUG on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 2:00pm.
The meeting will be held at the following location:

USM Library Gulf Park Campus
730 East Beach Blvd.
Long Beach, MS 39560

There were 5 people in attendance at the December meeting. We discussed redesigning the web site and what needed to be done to attract and retain members. It was decided that the group would make an effort to recruit new members through media outlets where available and also to revive the "Science Cafe on the Coast" presentations through schools, libraries and other venues. In an effort to retain anyone coming to their first meeting most all in attendance felt there should be a basic introductory course explaining why the terminal is a much more visible part of Linux and how to become proficient and at ease with its use.

SMLUG will be holding open discussions on Linux, free, and open source related topics.  Member's are encouraged to share topics and projects, if possible a short hands-on demo would be informative and welcomed.  Our meetings are free and open to public.

For the January meeting members are requested to bring a list of hardware that could be used in a practice install fest.  For those that are unfamiliar about installfests.  An Installfest is a special occasion when computer users get together to help each other install new operating systems, usually Linux and related programs.

See you there.

Michael Rainey
