About the Schedule

When Aaron became our President last June, he suggested that we should should alternate presentations between: 
I have distilled these categories down to the "Light & Fun" & "Deep & Meaty" you see in the table above.  Aaron's original intention was to have the "1st" meeting (see next paragraph) be beginner oriented, and the "2nd" meeting be veteran oriented.  As you can see from the schedule so far, it doesn't always work out that way. 

Each line is (normally) a 2 week period.  It may look confusing because we meet on the 4th Sat. of one month followed by the 1st Sat. of the next.  And so some of us refer to the 4th Sat as out "1st" meeting, and the 1st Sat as our "2nd" meeting. 

Suggestions for Presenters

Of course we hope that all speakers will try to have something for everyone.  If you are presenting a beginner topic, throw in a few references to advanced uses to pique the veterans' interest.  Not much detail, they can probably figure it out on their own, but enough to make them feel it was worthwhile listening to you. 

Conversely, if you are presenting an advanced topic, try not to leave us novices too far behind.  Even if we don't understand half of what you say, opening our eyes to the posibilities can make the time worthwhile.  You want us leave thinking:  "I want to know more about that." & "I'll remember this for when I'm ready for it."

And don't forget the

Door Prizes

We try to have real door prizes to raffle at every regular (Sat.) meeting.  The number will depend on attendance & availability.  In addition, we have Micro Center coupons, O'Reilly stickers, & the current O'Reilly catalog for everyone. 

Presenters:  As your Librarian, I can get (virtually) any O'Reilly book for the prize at your presentation.  Please let me know what you want 4 weeks in advance by e-mail.

Proposed Presentation Topics

What you'd like to hear, what you'd like to give.  We need suggestions & volunteers.  (Does anyone know any outside speakers we could get?)

Possible speakers -- JohnLightsey

The Hacker Mind-set and How to Get It (L&F) -- RickArchibald

Starting w/ Eric Raymond's Jargon File & its appendices, I would look at the profile of a typical hacker.  I would explore attitudes, tastes, & experiences we in HLUG share; and end w/ a suggested reading list. 

Boolean Algebra / Symbolic Logic (D&M) -- RickArchibald or ???

I don't know if I remember enough of this to make a good presentation, or if anyone would be interested; but it is one of the underpinnings of computing. 

Presentation Topics Actually in-the-Works:

DiskImaging and Partiton Recovery - (D&M) Aaron Estrada

How To Get A Distro from HLUG (L&F) -- idea by Pete Jamison, concocted by Aaron Estrada

Should you show up or can you grab something remotely? Do you need to be a member? Where's the roster of stuff now owned/available by the group? Find this out, and more, from the presentation entitled: GettingTheGoods.

Any chance you're going to cover LVM or EVMS? Or should I make that a separate presentation?

-- RussellAdams - 09 Jan 2004

Linux Hierarchical File System (L&F) -- RichardLawson?

SteveMusacchia? presented this at one of the 1st Sat. meetings I ever went to.  Very useful topic, worth repeating.  Richard will give us his version, which has the benefit of Steve's material. 
There will be a panel of experts to help answer questions.

Postgres (D&M) -- RobertCarlile?

Postgres & other db's

Remote Server Monitoring (D&M) -- RussellAdams

A subject near & dear to Russell's heart, & a major pain in my ears when that damn beeper goes off . . . But seriously, if your IT people can immediately fix that main server that went down at midnight; then your employees may never notice the outtage.  I.E. no work flow interruption.
