Meeting Agenda


This month is the annual scripting talk/open discussion. We have at least three items lined up and are hoping for some scripting items from the general membership, so feel free to volunteer a pet script or a scripting question. Scripting is a pretty open topic, not just limited to shells, but any scripting language is fair game. Maybe there will be something new.

If anyone is interested in doing a short ~5 minute talk on some scripting aspect, feel free to let the secretary ( at ) know that you are interested so we can line them up. As mentioned above, it can be about anything, something new you have discovered, a problem you are having, etc.

Meeting Details:

The meeting URL will now be a fixed URL, and should be up for connection by 18:30 on meeting nights and will vanish shortly after the meeting has concluded. The codewords that you need will also be predictable so that you no longer need the email with them to join. Hopefully you are on the mailing list so you will know the pattern.


Video and audio will be disabled when you join. In order to make sure the experience is a reasonable one for all involved, the presenter will share their screen-window-whatever they are comfortable with and you will see it quite clearly. Rather than unmute, pressing your space bar is supposed to unmute your microphone while pressed, so you can try that to ask questions. There is also the chat window, which no longer appears to obscure the rest of the session (maybe on small monitors?) Feel free to post questions and as opportunity presents itself and the presenter notices, they will get answered. After the presentation is completed, feel free to unmute and have a normal voice/video Q&A.
