List Server Down

Our NILUG list server is currently down. If you post messages to it, they will go into the fabled bit bucket. So, don't post until we get it fixed. Thanks.

NILUG Meetings for December 2012

The general and technical sessions of the North Idaho Linux Users Group will be held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays in December. The General Session will be held on 8 December at the usual place and usual time. At that meeting, we will install file server software on a computer that has been prepared for that purpose. Specifically, the computer now has 4 hard drives in it, and we will configure them as a RAID array before installing the file server software.

If you have questions about file servers or Linux in general, you are welcome to attend the general meeting.

The Technical Session for December will be held on 22 December at the usual place and usual time. At the last technical session, we prepared the computer that will be used as our file server. We also re-installed Ubuntu on a machine that was not updated for the last 3 or 4 years.

The Technical Session is used for helping people install and configure Linux, fixing hardware problems and doing any other tasks that need to be done for someone to use Linux on their computer. If you are interested in any of that, feel free to attend the meeting.

Upcoming General Session Activities

We spent much of the last general session coming up with a list of activities and talks we would like to do. They generally break down into two categories: a long term project and talks on various pieces of software. Here is what we came up with:

Long Term Project

The long term project is to build and connect all the pieces, hardware and software, for a small business or home network. We will start from the outside edge and work inward.

Software presentations

Software and how to do software stuff: touches a bunch of topics.
