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.
Hugo is a static website builder app. Caddy is a new web server app that uses HTTPS by default and has ties to Let’s Encrypt built right into it. Both are implemented using the Go programming language. Caddy includes a Hugo plugin that allows one to build and update elegant static websites easily. I built my consulting service website using the combination: https://broadcasttool.com/. I’d love to present the things I’ve learned about both Hugo and Caddy, and maybe learn from others about static websites.
This definitely falls into the non-Linux category of topics, so I’m happy to drop the proposal unless there’s interest in hearing about it.
Hey Isaac, this looks like a good list of subjects for your Firefox discussion. I’d also like to hear some comments on the recent uptick in Mozilla publicity for Firefox, and also if you know of any updates to Mozilla’s stance on Thunderbird (I know, getting a bit off topic…).
Damn, I’m too slow! Thanks for doing that Tim! For future reference, my public SSH key is below (watch the line breaks…).

Hey Tim (and everyone else)! Have you seen the letsencrypt.org project? It’s an SSL certificate authority and an umbrella for a bunch of utilities and infrastructure for doing encrypted web sites and email (and anything else that uses X.509 public key encryption (think SSH, PGP, GnuPG, openssl, etc., etc.).
Tim, would you be willing to convert the lclug.org nodeBB site to use SSL only? Let me know if you’d like help setting it up.
