The day for the monthly meeting has changed.It is now The last Thursday of the month. We are still meeting in the Lord Darcy at 7:30ish. If you know someone who is curious about Linux and wants to take the plunge, bring them along. If there is a topic you want to bring up, warn us in advance in the mailling list.
It was good – the ‘usual suspects’.
Darren bought along his USB headset – but with a slackware laptop that
it works on, as the machine (with the same slackware version) that it
does not work on is too large to lug along. Suggestions of comparing
dmesg output when switching audio sources etc. was suggested – and
also probably just generally blame pulse for audio issues – but maybe
that is a little unfair
Andy and I chatted about docker stuff, and Andy will be looking at
puppet as well.
We discussed how some pcie wifi cards don’t work in some laptops –
istr it is because some ‘pcie’ slots are not actually full pcie, and
are something else (same format) that only supports wifi – can’t
remember the name of that slot/’standard’ off the top of my head
Oh, and as on the list – we ‘fixed’ Andys wylug email on his Android
gmail app by logging in to the list service and unsetting ‘digest’
One thing we need to discuss – Andy won’t be able to make Mondays for
the next year! We discussed what would be the best other day for the
three of us present, and settled on that being a Thursday. So, we need
to discuss the possibility of moving the monthly meet from Mondays to
Thursdays. Input and opinions welcome here…
We did note that a non-Monday would also avoid all the bank holiday
This month sees us back in the Lord Darcy, which we have been to in the past. Anyone with something to show or talk about, please give advance notice on wylug-discuss on the meetups site< http://www.meetup.com/West-Yorkshire-Linux-users-group/ >or as a comment here. The time will be around 7:30 pm. Look for a bunch of us sitting round a laptop.
Time has come, once again, to inform members, and new visitors to wylug, that we will be meeting, in the Adelphi at around 7:30pm, to discuss the news in computing, to show off newly working distros, and whatever we plan in the meantime in other forums . If you are driving, or for whatever reason, do not want to drink alcohol, the Adelphi does a nice line in mixers, soft drinks etc.
The meeting sort of started with me ,Darren, and John from BradLUG waiting for the rest of you in the entrance to the Adelphi. By about 7:30pm most of you who stayed for the meeting had arrived.
Topics of discussion included
Taking a fortnight to download a copy of slackware in the days of phone-line modem connections.
How big Leeds DevOps is now.
How cheap computers are getting.
The way they teach computing – esp Linux in France, thanks Jean-Jaques
Why Leeds is a good place to work in computing.
Most of us boggled at eachother’s tablets, and my substitute for a tablet -a camera that cost me less than a beer!
By ~9pm I had to depart.
This month sees us in the Adelphi, just South of Leeds Bridge, Starting around 7pm-ish. One of the regulars, Andy, has offered to show us round a nearby data centre, during the meeting.
Here is a location link from google maps Look for the funny blokes sitting round the laptops, see you there!
