Hello folks!

As per various discussions had we will be having our regularly scheduled PLUG meeting at Applewood Retirement residence on Oct 1st.

This meeting will be on the third floor as our regular room is unavailable for that date.

I had offered to do QEMU / KVM and a bottom up install of Ubuntu (hopefully not at 640x480 this time)

If anyone else has ideas or wants to contribute I welcome any input.

Bill it was suggested you do a Reboot of your Presentation you up for doing that at some point?

Date: Monday, October 1st, 2018 - 7 PM
Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side. Entrance is at the front of the building.
We will be meeting on the 3rd floor in the Library this month.

Thank you for getting this out early, Brian! You might want to post the details on the main page of the website, too. I know most of our regulars check here, but new people won't be aware that announcements are posted here.

Ideally, I could add a link back to YahooGroups announcement list on the main page of the website or create our own list. PHPList is available for on our host, I believe. And then we could get people signed up for either and let it be know that announcements will only be posted there. But that's something I suggest we do in November. My anxiety level is off the rails right now with the campaign so it's not something I can really work on until after the campaign.

Wondering who all is coming tonight? -- Also what kind of video connections do they have in the library? if it's hdmi I'll use my surface, if it's VGA I'll have to haul in my NUC.

I know they have VGA for sure on it since I've used that - I don't know if HDMI is available.. It's not in the library, you have to arrange with Laurie so that she leaves out a screen and a portable projector. You should confirm the meeting next week with her anyway.

Good morning all.  We, Kal and I for sure, will be joining the PLUG group tonight.  Sounds like a good demo.

Very interesting KVM demo yesterday. The setup from the library was an initial challenge, as the wall monitor was at the back of the room with no outlet nearby and no extension cord. We ended up taking it off the wall, screwing the base back on, and moving it to the front of the room where there was an outlet.

Brian in his usual flashy way ran the demo from a remote image sitting on his home computer. His setup involved 3 or 4 layers of remote desktops; I couldn't follow all of the layers but it was very geeky (read impressive). The bad new was that his Ubuntu 18.10 daily image wouldn't boot up completely, so he ended up downloading a Fedora image and booting it. He also did a comparison of KVM with the usual virtual machine suspects: VirtualBox and VMware. KVM is closer to bare metal, but not that much harder to set up if you use the GUI app "Virt-Manager".

Sorry that I missed it. Sounds like it was very cool. I will have to schedule my colds more carefully in the future :)
