    Regular Tuesday Night Meeting

    Welp, new day, new chapter.

    Russ Brown of OGI (and diehard MLUG member) who has been graciously hosting our meetings for at least the past 6 years has called it quits. Unfortunately this leaves us in search of a new meeting venue.

    Fret not, we're still meeting as always. Just remember to check the calendar on the day of the meeting to find out where and what establishment is about to incur our wrath :).

    We'll still be meeting weekly, except our only fixed meeting location will now be St. Mary's Catholic School in Rockledge on the third Tuesday of every month.

    LUG News / Business

    Sometime in the previous week (before the last Tuesday meeting), the system went dark. IXC telecom informed us of the issue and took steps to do some troubleshooting of the issue so we could have a quick resolution.

    Unfortunately those efforts didn't result into a working box scenario. I spent some time today on location trying to resurrect the system with a new motherboard / CPU combination.

    General Newshi everyone, i've setup a website so that users of open source server side software can come and look at instructional guides, how-to's, forums, wiki's and all sorts of other information about setting up software on Linux for both windows and Linux based networks.

    I am currently still working on it, adding new screen shots every day, hoping to double check a lot of my how-to's once the screen shots are added, re-write them to increase keyword density of my articles for better search engine results & once that is done i will hopefully be added streaming video of my how-to articles using either youtube embed code or revver embed code.

      introduction   View Printable Version 
    Tuesday, August 08 2006 @ 11:54 AM EDT Contributed by:sababeach Views: 16425

    General NewsJust joined the group; I'll introduce myself. My first name is Tim
    and I live in central Florida near Orlando. My vocation is as a
    business application programmer which I started in '66 by
    wire-wrapping boards for Univac 1004/1005s. I spent the next 14 years
    designing/writing big-iron financial applications: demand desposit,
    time deposit, installment loan. Since '81 I've specialized in
    designing/writing micro-iron vertical order processing applications
    for distribution businesses: automotive aftermarket,
    awards & presentations, pottery & landscaping.

    My hardware is limited to Intel/AMD powered computers on which I use
    FreeBSD and the Debian distribution of Linux.

    My current project is a web enabled horizontal order processing
    application using Apache and Linux/FreeBSD which you can test drive,
    if you wish, at my showroom at

    I am retired excepting continued support for my order processing application. I join *ix user groups as an enjoyable way to keep up
    with the state of *ix software.

      [MythTV]-politik   View Printable Version 
    Thursday, June 22 2006 @ 01:22 PM EDT Contributed by:Anonymous Views: 15611

    Geeklog Newshey all
    this is a forward of a forward, of a forward that I recieved today.
    figured the mythtv enthusiasts would like to read this.

    As mentioned tonight, the broadcast flag is back, and worse than ever.
    The Senate is currently considering telecom legislation that includes
    flags for both digital TV and radio. These flags would "signal"
    copyrighted content to the receiver, which would be mandated to read and
    obey -- preventing you from recording. Your right to fair use would not
    exist, and MythTV would not exist either -- or at least, it'd be illegal.

    Luckily, we can stop this from happening. Tomorrow, the Senate Commerce
    Committee will "mark up" the telecom bill. An amendment will be offered
    to strike the flags from the bill. One of Florida's Senators, Bill
    Nelson, sits on the committee -- make sure he hears from his constituents!

    The markup is scheduled for 2 pm tomorrow (Thursday). Please call
    tomorrow morning to save MythTV and your right to fair use.

    Sen. Bill Nelson (FL)
    (202) 224-5274

    Tell the receptionist that you are a constituent and you want to
    register a comment about legislation. Then ask Sen. Nelson to "support
    the Sununu Amendment to strike the broadcast and radio flags" in the
    Commerce telecom markup. Add something personal about MythTV, Linux,
    your rights, or innovation. Be nice :)

    For more information:

    Public Knowledge has a lot of information from the past week on their
    blog. Additionally, see this great ad from the Consumer Electronics

    Please call tomorrow. It only takes a minute, and it could save your
    future computer from becoming crippled or illegal.
