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.


End October 2021 - Our email lists had been down for a while, missing September and October meeting announcements. They are back up now, thanks to our pick-up admin, using a new email list service. If you somehow weren't covered in the backup restores, please re-subscribe yourself using the links on the left.

Virtual pandemic social during our technical meeting timeslot: Thursday November 11th

6 pm

Meeting link here.

There is no moderator when using this software, so if we get invaded we will have to bail and figure out a different session ID and then also definitely use a password, that'd go out by email and/or wiki update ASAP.

Agenda - what would you like to do for our virtual board game night in December? Do we want a typical 1 hour slot on our usual 2nd Thursday schedule, since there's only so long we can stare at screens? Or do we want to move to a Friday night and have a longer window, as we would often have historically done in-person?

Anything else you want to see on the agenda? Let Tim or Tina know.

Virtual Board Game Night: Friday December 3rd

6 pm

Board games! Time to play. Some of our avid gamers are screening some options, we'll get back to you on what those are. In 2020 we used Board Game Arena, and that's still an option for this year, it is known, many of us already have accounts, and it is free.

Upcoming Meeting Crisis!

We need some meeting topics (& speakers) for 2019. 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?
