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.
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.
Did you used to be on our email list and suddenly haven't gotten email for months? We had a glitch and it caused many people to get unsubscribed; unfortunately Tina doesn't have a way of knowing who all we lost. Please use "Linux mailing list" on the left to get yourself re-added, sorry!
Technical Meeting Social : February 9th, 2017
We did not get any volunteers for speakers, so we'll go play instead.
We're going to hang out at the Machine Shed. Costs are:
$10 ages 13+
$5 ages 8-12
7 and under are free with paid adult
The Machine Shed website.
They're open from 4-8 pm, and the cost is flat per session, so if you feel like arriving early for longer gaming that's certainly fine. They also sell snacks, drinks, and pizza, so you can come straight after work.
They are located at 11 2nd St NE, Rochester, MN 55906 in the east portion of the Wausau Homes building (look for the two large garage doors and the entry door).
Note that the signage is almost non-existent, they have a plain text-only sign on the appropriate door, but no big sign on the building. The parking lot there IS for customers, or you can park on the street. I won't be attending, you'll have to gather around someone else.
Technical Meeting: March 9th, 2017
Speaker needed, please let Tina know if you're willing to volunteer. Willing to present but want to know what people have expressed interest in? Check out our requested topics page.
Also, PCIG officer nominations.
6 pm, in or near RCTC Heintz Center's HA107.
Anything else you want to see on the agenda? Let Tina know.
Planned Social: March 2017, TBD
Ideas can be found here or invent your own. What would you like to do? Tell Tina.
Do we have a May meeting? Or do we all go to a free physics show at the Civic Center auditorium?

Upcoming Meeting Crisis!
We need some meeting topics (& speakers) for 2017. We'd like to know what you want to see and hear about. Please email Tina with suggestions for topics. Should we run some previous sessions again (maybe something you really wanted to see but missed out on)? What type of topics are good, what type are bad? Also see this page for a list of suggested topics http://www.k-lug.org/Meetings
