PLUG Meeting September - (re)Schedule
« on: August 30, 2018, 02:52:47 pm »
Seeings as we have a holiday weekend, I think it would be best to move the PLUG meeting to another week if that is okay with everyone. More than happy to take suggestions for another night and we can make it work. I'll be in and out of town all next week so possibly the 10th or after for me is best.

I am more than happy to take suggestions for meeting topics for our first meeting of the year, I'll also be sending out a facebook notice and mailing list update.

If there are no takers I would be happy to demo build in virtualization using QEMU / KVM And one of my patented bottom up installs from an Ubuntu mini ISO coming in a whopping 64mb in size.

I hope you have all had a wonderful summer (ITS NOT OVER YET!!!!).

That's fine by me. Not sure if I will be able to make September meeting but I will make sure payment gets to Laurie.

Jason let it be known that I am damn proud of what you have accomplished and frankly the meeting will be missing a lot if you can't make it. :) either way thank you!

I agree with Brian (on both changing the meeting date and Jason's contributions). Personally, I would be happy to keep the meetings on Mondays and just move this one back a week, but I'm flexible.

As far as topics go, the virtualization idea is more interesting than anything I can come up with. And if Harry is interested and available, he could perhaps do a second half on his virtualization experiences with the different distros he tried. (As I recall, he uses VMware Player, which could be contrasted with QEMU/KVM. We have had virtualization demoed with VirtualBox in the past, but I don't recall ever having a PLUG meeting featuring any other virtualization software.

Thanks guys!

Unless things have changed, Mondays were the only nights that Applewood had free which is why it's never moved. But you can certainly check with Laurie if you guys want to have a different night but don't do it just for me especially since I may or may not be elected.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make the PLUG meeting.
I have an ongoing medical issue and they have just booked me into ptbo hospital for this Sunday, for another medical procedure.

I hate to add to the complication, but I won't be able to attend either if it's this coming Monday.

There most certainly can be a meeting On Monday I have to confirm if we still have the room at Applewood tomorrow as I have not heard back.

Bill I hope that all is well and I am sure everyone here is sending love and good vibes your way.

Otherwise if not Applewood we'll just change this to a MUG and meet up at the Monaghan Timmies.
