The People’s Food Coop meeting space is unavailable this month. Does anyone have suggestions for an alternative space? Should we cancel for this month?
What do y’all think?
Thanks for that, @harps116! I forgot to mention it too! Peek is what I used to create those screen capture sessions. It’s awesome!
Though I think I should have used gifsicle to optimize the GIF images after the Peek captures. The GIFs were so large that they were bogging my laptop down…
Hey @techgirl, I’m pretty sure the github link @harps116 referred to was just an example, not anything endorsed by this group (if there even is such a thing as a “group endorsement”). I concur with previous suggestions that a printed cheat sheet of tools and commands that are built-in to most Linux systems would be a good way for those less experienced users to ease into using the command line.
I’ll try to put something togethe and bring copies to the meeting Thursday (July 19). Then we can all add to it as we all learn more.
Did you set up Nextcloud to be visible from the Internet? I’ve been interested in playing with a “federated” Nextcloud setup – where 2 or more separate installations are connected and can share stuff between them.
My instance is at https://grunch.org/nextcloud
Let me know if yours is visible to the intertubes.
Anybody up for a session on Linux command line tips and tricks?
I’d also be willing to talk about and host a daily or weekly email with Linux one-liners – “one line” commands that do interesting and cool things. It’d be fun to make it so others could contribute to it as well…
Volunteer-powered, non-commercial radio station WDRT is looking for an Operations Coordinator. This person coordinates the technical operations of the station. The right candidate will be a tech-minded person who is proficient with Linux-based operating systems, can work with modern, networked IT infrastructure, has experience with analog and IP-based audio systems and thrives in a self-directed, cooperative office space.
Weather permitting, I’m planning to be at the People’s Food Co-op at 6pm. Anyone else thinking of making it?
Any suggestions for a topic?
I’m interested in Ubuntu Core lately for building embedded systems. I’d be happy to share what I know about it.
Hope to see you there!
The People’s Food Co-op charges $40 per meeting for the space. I’ve been pitching in to help Matthew with the cost. If we all tossed in a few bucks per meeting it would only cost each of us a beer/cup of coffee/[your favorite vice here] each. I really like the space: it’s convenient and it’s a good place to get a quick and/or good meal before the meetings.
