I agree with Jason. We don't have that many meetings in a year. Perhaps this might be an opportunity to try having the meeting at the game place (?)

I also checked the calendar and the May meeting will still be three weeks after the April meeting.

I might be able to attend the April meeting with the change. Depends on when the armadillo infestation is cleared off the campground road. Florida is notorious for this of course, and a cool spring seems to make it worse.

The monthly meeting won't be until a week from tonight (Monday, April 16th), just for clarification. I expect there will be a MUG tomorrow night at e-Retro Sports Bar.

The weather forecast for Monday's PLUG meeting is not looking that good.  There may be rain/snow occurring.

If the weather does turn bad, I will have to do my Raspberry Pi usb webcam Motion dectecting demo, at the May meeting because I don't expect to drive in from Lindsay, when the weather is not that good.

I think everybody will understand if you can't make it, Bill, though you will certainly be missed. Let's hope the weather turns out better than forecast.

If Bill can't make it and Jason doesn't have enough to cover the full meeting, I could pinch hit with a brief demo of openSUSE Tumbleweed (KDE version).

Sounds good to me!

"Harry, did you say armadillos? Seriously?  ;D"

I am certainly not in the habit of fabricating stories in the face of established scientific fact. And one armadillo is fine, but hundreds of them can be quite intimidating, especially when they all turn and look at you and you don't know what they are planning.

Lol. Like Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" but with Armadillos?

The PLUG meeting has been rescheduled for April 16th, 2018 since April 2nd is Easter Monday and the following Monday wasn't available. Same place, same time. Brian will be putting out an announcement with the details at least a week before the meeting.
.
Is this meeting going to happen ? I have seen no announcement or email.

As far as I know, yes. The meeting room is booked and confirmed and we have at least one topic (mine). I'm not sure why it hasn't been posted yet.

Sick family, real estate drama, and work presentations. Excuses galore. Posting now.

At this meeting we will also be taking membership renewals. Membership, although voluntary, is encouraged. Membership fees cover our room rental costs and any surplus is used to treat members during the Christmas Pizza party. A membership is only $25 a year, a fee that hasn't changed since 2000. You can pay via cash or cheque (made out to PLUG). Membership also gives you the opportunity to review Linux-related or other computer books, and bragging rights.

I'm confused. I thought that the topic was going to be PureOS.
