Welcome to the TriLUG home page. We are a LUG dedicated to the Triangle area including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. This site, along with our wiki, will enable you to keep abreast of TriLUG information (meetings, events, news), and to communicate with local Linux and FOSS (Free and Open Source) enthusiasts.
In order to simplify administration and provide more direct, responsive contact to the Steering Committee for the membership, we have created a Contact Us page. Please use the following URL to send information, requests, or comments to the SC.
Stay tuned for more info.
Please join us February 8, 2007 at 7pm at Red Hat HQ (map and directions) for another great TriLUG meeting!
Greg Dekoenigberg, Red Hat's Community Development Manager, will be speaking on the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project. OLPC is a laptop and accompanying software created expressly for the world's poorest children living in its most remote environments.
TriLUG Webmail is now available here. Special thanks to Tanner Lovelace for his work on the SSL portion and accompanying modifications.
The January 2007 TriLUG Meeting is upon us!
We are meeting at redhat HQ as usual:
Thursday 11th Jan 2007 at 19:00
*Oh, and free pizza and drinks.
*Oh, and the Status of the LUG presentation.
*Oh, and... no. That's all.
Thanks to everyone who donated and made the Holiday Food Drive successful. We dropped off about 60 lbs of food to Raleigh Rescue Mission.
The December Podcast, audio from Daniel Chen's June talk on Ubuntu Dapper Drake, is now available via the feed http://www.trilug.org/podcastogg.
In the interest of simplifying the production of the TriLUG Podcast, the m4a format podcast is no longer available. However, the podcast is now available in the equally patent-encumbered format mp3. That feed is available at http://www.trilug.org/podcastmp3. The m4a feed will continue to be updated until the mp3 feed shows up in iTMS. Given some technical limitations of converting and encoding the podcast, patent-encumbered versions maybe a short-lived phenomenon. I'm looking for feedback on this.
As an incentive to this year's Holiday Food Drive, the top three food donors will be awarded a geeky gift from ThinkGeek.
Some examples what is good to donate:
- Canned corn, peas, carrots, soups, veg-all, applesauce, oranges, baked beans, chili beans, cranberry sauce
- Jars of apple sauce, baby food, pasta sauce\ - Dry goods such as instant mashed potatoes, dried soups, stuffing, oatmeal, cereal, crackers, baby formula, pasta, mac & cheese
- Plastic bottles or other containers of non-perishable juice
