I am most pleased to announce that the next session of the Linuxatlax
(Lilax) Linux user group will take place at the headquarters of eLinux
(A division of Creative Computers, http://www.elinux.com
) located at
Sat May 13th beginning at 10 am and continuing to at least 3 pm (we might
go on as needed to 5 pm) Please refer to
for map links.
The meeting will take place in the spacious downstairs conference center.
There we will have comfortable seating, desks, a projection system
with white-board as well as switched high-speed Internet access (via a
drop from the main T3).
We will have several servers running various distributions of Linux for
our use. Access to the network will be via DHCP server so bring along some
extra UTP patch cables as well as any of the software or hardware you
think would be useful. (certainly extra power strips are always useful)
This session will follow an open forum (after some preliminary
administrative discussion). There will be several programmers at this
session; one who has a keen interest in the Python scripting language- and
others who are interested in discussing some new applications using
Perl. I know that others have expressed interest in getting RAID array
systems configured as well as other who have general configuration issues.
As you like participants will be given the "floor" to go up to the podium
and address the group with a spontaneous mini-tutorial or question,
problem or observation etc... on whatever computing subject you think
appropriate. During this time you are more than welcome to continue your
work in smaller groups too and if needed address the whole group with any
issues that develop.
I would also like us to consider "simul-casting" this session over our
groups IRC server (184.108.40.206, #lilax, port 6667) so that our virtual
members can also participate in the days events. This would also allow us
to capture and share the screen / command-line input during the session as
well as fielding questions/comments from members on the east coast and
So please bring along your laptops, boxen, software, hardware etc... with
your ideas and let's take the time to get use to our new surroundings over
at eLinux/ Creative Computers. I am sure that we will find that the
network access will really make the sessions far more productive.
There is ample parking in front and to the side of the main building (with
hundreds of spaces!). From there you would climb up the stairs to the main
entrance. There will be a banner directing you to the elevators and the
downstairs conference center.
There are various vending machines with snacks and drinks at the center.
If you have any special requests, ideas or would like to present something
please let me know and I'll try to make it happen.
all the best,
PS, please pass this on to any list, group or others to whom you think
this might be of interest
