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.

The primary modes of interacting with us: mailing list, IRC, or coming to the monthly meetings.

Organizational meeting - December 2

Thu, 2010-11-11 10:33

RESCHEDULED: Thursday, December 2, 2010

===============================================
For the last ten years, TriLUG has been operating as a NC non-profit corporation. In the early days, that structure was necessary because the LUG accepted donated hardware and re-donated it to schools and local LUG's. Since then, Linux has become more mainstream, accepted at corporations, and sometimes even used at schools. And in that time, TriLUG's mission has changed significantly, from being an incubator to more of an educational/technical/social group.

November 11 meeting - Open Source Software for Musicians

Mon, 2010-11-01 14:45

Have you ever wanted to use your computer to record or play music?

In the old days, it took a studio full of equipment to produce and record music. But now, the required tools are much more affordable, and can easily fit into a home studio. There is a wide selection of very robust audio applications that run on standard PC hardware, and many of them are FREE ("free" as in "beer" -- but also as in "freedom").

Wed, 2010-10-06 00:30

Time & Place: October 14, 2010, 7pm, at Red Hat HQ

Title: Introduction to ModSecurity, the Open Source Web Application Firewall

About this talk:

So your web server listens on port 80 and your firewall blocks most everything else. Secure, right? How about that port 80? Do you trust your application code? Is your server patched? Are your developers really more clever than the folks who want to break in? Is security even on the mind of your developers?

September 9 meeting: High Altitude Balloon Flights to Near Space

Sun, 2010-08-29 08:10

High Altitude Balloon Flights to Near Space
Presented by Jonathan R. Trappe & Tanner Lovelace

Recently, several LUG members competed in a challenge
to gather pictures of the curved horizon of the Earth from
near-space... not with rockets and elaborate gear, but on
the cheap, using a balloon and consumer-grade equipment.

Jonathan Trappe and long-time LUG member Tanner Lovelace
will talk about the challenge rules, and how the team assembled
and weighed ideas quickly, launching their balloon after just
three weeks of planning. Then we'll hear how things did not

August 12 meeting: Getting Started with IPv6

Sun, 2010-08-01 11:52

The IPv4 address space is running out, and the future has arrived.
IPv6 is the new standard for the Internet, and the time to adopt it is
now.

Long time TriLUG member Kevin Otte is a Linux Systems Administrator
and a Network Engineer, and he has more IP addresses in his home
than some countries have.

Come hear Kevin give us not only the "what it is" and "the end is nigh"
parts of the IPv6 puzzle, but also the "how can I tinker with it" and "why
would I want to" parts, as well.

July 8 meeting: Why Linux Is Bad For Business

Tue, 2010-06-29 13:28

We all love free software. We think it should be used everywhere,
right? And that means Linux... Linux everywhere, right?

Not always. Actually, there are times when Linux is not such a
great fit for the task. There are other solutions...

Wesley Shields will be telling us about his favorite open source
project, and how it can be a good fit for companies that need a Unix
solution. He'll tell us what's similar to Linux, what's different, and
why companies might care.
