K-LUG - Rochester, MN Area Linux Users Group

Note: To request a wiki account, please join the mailing list and post a message.

We can use presentations for upcoming meetings, please see a list of ideas if you're willing but lacking a topic.


LUG News

We generally meet monthly for technical presentations (2nd Thursday of the month, 6 pm, RCTC), and monthly for socializing (varies). We no longer meet monthly for lunches, if you are interested in reviving this tradition please contact an officer.





Virtual Technical Meeting: Thursday May 21st

Note the date change! One week later than usual. But it'll still be a Thursday, and still at our usual 6 pm start time. Probably no business portion to start due to virtual format, so presenter content may start closer to the top of the hour than you're used to. Matt Bruzek will tell us about his Texas experiments in robotic lawn mowing, since their lawn mowing season started well ahead of ours.

So you are surviving the pandemic apocalypse but your lawn still needs to be mowed. Make a robot mow your lawn instead of you! Matt Bruzek will talk about the robot lawn mowers and give some tips and lessons learned from his adventures in robot lawn mowing.

CANCELLED Social: Monday May 18th

All of Rochester's Litter Bit Better has been pushed to October, so we've been delayed until October 6th, see below.

Litter Bit Better!

Our annual clean up a corner of the world event, helping de-litter a local park as a part of Litter Bit Better. As usual we're teaming up with the geocachers who get CITO credit.

Parking is here or here, in the SE or SW corners of the park. The official group gathering location is on the SE corner of the park.

6 pm start time.

Bags and trash are provided, you need to provide your own gloves and a sense of civic duty. If anyone has some waterproof boots and/or grabbers for cleaning the marshy stream edge, that'd be great too.


Technical Meeting: Thursday June 11th

Presenter needed. Willing to volunteer? Tell Tina.


6 pm, in or near RCTC Heintz Center's H1411 (note: For those of you that have been coming for a long time, we are still in the same place, the rooms in the Heintz Center were renumbered. Prior to March 20th this room had been known as HA108. If anyone finds updated maps, please let us know.)

Hoping by now we'll be far enough out we can do things outside together.
