We had a new face this week, Peter visiting from the Fylde computer club. Welcome Peter!
The Fylde computer club meets at Lostock gardens Community centre, off St. Annes Road on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month (7pm ’til 9-30). This is an open invitation, all welcome, and admission is FREE.
Today we spent the meeting discussing Linux, and debating the type of projects we could undertake. This is a topic that we regularly discuss in order to ensure that the group is meeting the needs of the membership.
As well as meeting the needs of the membership, it might be good if we could tackle some advocacy type projects to encourage some new users to ‘dip their toe’ in the Linux water. Tony has already made a start with his posts about the open disk project.
Some projects can take a considerable amount of time and effort to complete, and could give the impression that no progress is being made. To offset this impression, it was suggested that we should take on some small projects that could be started and finished in the 2 hours of the meeting.
Members are invited to put forward suggestions for projects/topics that they would like to cover or see covered.
