Plug Meeting - May 6th
« on: April 17, 2019, 09:34:05 am »
Happy spring!

As there is no formal agenda I am more than happy to take suggestions. I would gladly volunteer for another free-form Q&A Session if we do not have a topic to present. For this meeting tell your friends see if you can bring a new face or two or ten out.

If we end up with a plan I'll update the announcement and send out a followup email.
Arch, Ubuntu. In that order. (Definitely 04/2018)

We need to take membership renewals in May as well.

I'll also try and think of a presentation concept. I haven't gotten around to it yet but I'll be uploading the slideshow for the presentation on 2FA and Password Managers.

If I recall correctly, you didn't actually make that presentation. If this is the case, why not do so at the upcoming meeting?

Well, we announced it twice already. It doesn't seem right to have the same presentation promoted for a third month in a row.

It wasn't cancelled due to lack of interest!

"It wasn't cancelled due to lack of interest!" Very true, but how many have written to the forum saying, "I really, really want this presentation!" It's fine with me because I know we'll get sidetracked into all kinds of amazing stuff. But maybe, like an athlete, after all these months, Jason has lost his edge on this topic.

And another point, because of the missed meetings, we all get some money back, right?  :)

NO refunds!  ;)

If at least three members ask me to do the 2FA authentication and password managers presentation by Monday the 22nd I will do it. Otherwise, I think we should do something else.

Perhaps Mike will have had enough time to play with Ubuntu 19.04 by then? Supposed to be officially released tomorrow although you can grab as a frozen development build right now which will be the same thing.

I will upgrade to Disco Dingo tomorrow morning as soon as the final version is released. But from what I understand, there won't be any major changes to talk about for any more than a few minutes. Speaking of which, here is a brief video of what's new in 19.04.

Sure, 2Fa authentication would be good to hear about!
