Blackpool LUG Meeting 15th January 2011

Once again we hit the heady heights of 7!
Peter, Arran, Colin, Mike, Ed, Dave and Les all met this week.
And what can I say, it was a very busy meeting.
Colin and Mike tinkered with Colin’s Micro Core Linux installation, Colin installed a browser so he could surf the web.
Mike and Colin then learnt a few lines of Python, using a book that Mike is currently reading and this website http://try-python.mired.org/.
Les and Peter created a video using an application called Openshot, which is part of Pinguy OS which we were using.
Pinguy is based on Linux Mint, and is a very good distribution, but I feel that it was a little too resource hungry, as it consumed nearly 700mb on boot!
Openshot is a great little video editor, and it allows you to add transitions and effects very easily. Les will be looking into this application.
Finally Arran and Dave learnt how to download source files and use configure, make and make-install.
Ed joined in with various discussions, and next week is hoping to bring his server so that we can build a bare metal server.
Tune in next week for more action.
Les
