Due to a lack of communication with PLU, we were locked out of our regular meeting spot. At 1:30ish those of us who showed up (on time) hiked one block east to the Northern Pacific Coffee Company at C and Garfield Street, Parkland to conduct the meeting.
|1:00pm to 1:30pm||Meet and Greet||Everybody|
|1:30pm to 2:30pm||PGP and Encryption||(Charles Mauch)|
|2:30pm to 3:00pm||Socialize/Smoke/Coffee Break||Everybody|
|3:00pm to 4:00ish||Where are we going with Taclug?||(Charles Mauch & Paul Edwards)|
- The original Agenda was scrapped and we held an informal meeting to dicuss the future of Taclug. Several ideas were proposed, ranging from attempting to fork a new organization to ways to work within the existing LUG structure to effect some change. A middle road solution was agreed upon. A proposal was generated in order to save the organization.
- Everyone indicated a desire to begin targeting the group at newer linux users. In the past, Taclug has been primarily a social club for a small circle of hackers, which hasn't really served the community well. Everybody agreed that it would be a great idea to start alternating InstallFests every other month in order to cater to newer users, and to provide a "show and tell" forum for more experienced users.
- We also spent some time describing recent technical problems and achievements.
Technical Issues & Notes
- Charles Mauch has been working on several projects lately. They include a perl replacement for procmail (http://svn.mauch.name/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/mailfilter/trunk/?root=source), homedir in subversion (http://svn.mauch.name/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/?root=configs), and a bunch of small desktop perl utilities. He has also been fooling around with MPD (http://www.musicpd.org/) quite a bit lately.
- Kurt Forsberg has been working on some super-secret RFID project for work.
- Wes Jennings has had some email difficulities lately, but seems to have overcome them with a creative SSH solution.
- Joel Carlson has been working with Suse Linux 10 RC.1 (http://www.opensuse.org/) and Puppy Linux 1.0.5 RC.1 (http://www.goosee.com/puppy/), but has been having problems getting Puppy Linux to boot from flash media because there is not yet a sda hdd option, only sda zip. DSL 1.5 already has both options. Is it possible for grub on your internal hard drive to boot a usb external hard drive or usb flash drive? If so, what do you need to enter in the Grub menu?
