We expect two major activities to take place. The first and most important being helping new users get GNU/Linux installed on their workstations and/or laptops. When the meeting starts, we'll try and pair you with an experienced GNU/Linux user to help you get things going. If you encounter a problem that either you or your "tech support" cannot solve, the following people have volunteered to act as roving "Tier 3 Tech Support". Flag one of them down if you get really stuck.
The other "big" activity will be happening all around you. We're encouraging our members who have current GNU/Linux desktops or laptops to bring them in for a show and tell session. Think of it as a car show, but with computers, appliances, xbox's, etc. running GNU/Linux distributions. If you are in this crowd, We HIGHLY encourage you to lock your workstation screen (or turn your pc off) when your away from your computer. Do show off your setup! You may be asked to give a demonstration.

Technical Issues & Notes
- Charles demonstrated his email setup, svn homedirs, and his e16 desktop.
- Jeff Maxwell demonstrated the new Enlightenment LiveCD featuring the beta of E17.
- We might want to consider purchasing some plastic mats for desktop machines so we can protect the tables from scratches.
- Next time we have a Tech Session, we ought to make sure people know that there is a cart to shuttle their computers back and forth between the parking lot and Xavier Hall. For a heavy desktop, it's quite a walk on your own. Thanks to David Allen for procuring the cart for us.
