Wednesday 6th June 2012 – Social Meeting

After the somewhat successful relaunch of the Lincolnshire LUG and the <br />
huge turn out at the GitHub London drink up a few weeks ago it really <br />
is time to get the largest Linux user base in the UK back together. <br />
<br />
We're starting out informally, just to gauge interest and to discuss <br />
plans, locations, dates etc. over a few drinks. We want as many people <br />
to come along as possible. Whether you're a GLLUG regular, or simply <br />
have an interest in finding out more about Linux or Free software. <br />
<br />
We have booked out a section of The Skinners Arms (5 minutes walk from <br />
Kings Cross Station) for the 6th of June from 6pm. You can find us at <br />
the back and we'll be bringing along a little fluffy Tux so you'll know <br />
you're in the right place. <br />
<br />
The Skinners Arms has a great selection of beers and a pretty standard menu. <br />
<br />
We've booked for 30 people so we're hoping to freak out the Landlord <br />
and get many more than that. If you're having difficulties finding the <br />
place or what more information you can e-mail <a href="mailto:mattcopp+gllug@gmail.com">Matthew Copperwaite</a>.<br />
<br />
Really hope to see you there. <br />

25th August 2011 – Celebrate the 20th anniversary of Linux

On 25th August 1991 Linus Torvalds announced that he had been working on a new PC (80386) operating system. <br />
<br />
Now, 20 years later we all know and (mostly) love Linux, the fruit of his labours.<br />
<br />
To celebrate this GLLUG (and others) will meet on 25th August at Mabel's Tavern, 9 Mabledon Place, WC1H 9AZ from 5pm onwards.<br />
<br />
Mabel's Tavern is a "Shepherd Neame" pub so we can expect to drink real beer. They serve food too.<br />
<br />
You can see details of the pub at <a href="http://www.mabelstavern.co.uk/" title="www.mabelstavern.co.uk">http://www.mabelstavern.co.uk/</a><br />
<br />
<strong>N.B. The mailing lists are working again!</strong><br />

About GLLUG

Welcome<br />
<br />
GLLUG's purpose is to bring together London's Linux users so they can share experiences and expertise (or revel in their inexperience and quest for expertise), to chat about the state of the (Linux) world, that sort of thing.<br />
<br />
There are no membership fees, just pop along to a meeting, or join the mailing lists or IRC channel. For more details check the <a href="http://www.gllug.org.uk/index.php?/archives/3-Online-Discussions.html" >Online Discussions</a> page.

<br />
The next talk is titled "Typesetting with Free Software Tools" and<br />
will be given by Tethys.<br />
<br />
After being introduced to the wonders of Unix at university,<br />
Tethys was hooked. With the release of Linux a few years later,<br />
he was able to use Unix at home as well, and has never looked<br />
back. He has interests in digital typography, large system<br />
design, and playing with LARTC. His career has alternated<br />
between coding and sysadmin for various companies in various<br />
industries. One of those was in the pre-press department of<br />
a large newspaper group, where an interest in typesetting<br />
became a profession for a while. He is currently at the<br />
coding end of the spectrum, writing software for a small<br />
company using statistical analysis to predict future trends.<br />
<br />
We are returning to our previous venue at the University of<br />
Westminster, in the Large Lecture Theatre. If people could arrive for<br />
1900, ready for the talk to begin at 1930. At the end of the talk we<br />
usually visit the pub for a few drinks, general chat and socialising.<br />
<br />
Sean has a sign-in sheet organised on the day for people to sign so he<br />
can get an idea of attendance.<br />

<br />
The next talk is titled "Wire Shark and the basics of network traffic monitoring." and will be given by Nahual Marisi and John Sharp.<br />
<br />
We have a slight change of venue, we will still be meeting at the University of Westminster (Cavendish Campus), but in Room C1.04. If people could arrive for 1900, ready for the talk to begin at 1930. I will try and get some signs made up to direct people to room C1.04 Hopefully there will be a trip to a local pub for social and technical chit-chat.<br />
<br />
I feel the "I'm going" email's were unpopular and Sean had a sign-in sheet organised on the day anyway. So I think we should stick people just turning up and signing in. (ie you don't have to email the list or me explicitly stating you are going, unless you <strong>really really</strong> want us to know.)<br />

There will be a talk for the GLLUG by Richard Jones on libguestfs[1] on Thursday 18th March at 1930. It will be held at the Cavendish campus of the University of Westminster, in the Large Lecture Theatre. I will try and get a more accurate description of the lecture theatre's location and post it to the mailing list and website. If people could arrive at 1900 to make sure we are ready to begin at 1930. After the talk I suggest we go to a decent local pub for a social.<br />
