Meeting Agenda


Just a reminder that the first part of the meeting will be concentrating on those new to Linux as a way to get people started.

For those new to Linux, John has a talk titled: “Decisions when setting up a new system”

The second talk will be a demo from Scott on the Pi based KVM over IP mentioned during the last meeting and if there is sufficient interest, a future talk on building one, why you might want one and a host of expansion ideas.

And we have a third talk from Tug titled: “Choirs of Covid: What if your thing is live collaborative music?”

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. If not, it is in the list archive and you just append it to the meeting URL. Since you will be joining as anonymous guests, you will not have a username or password. if it asks for a username and password, it has not been started yet.


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.
