Linux user group Ten years ago – May 2010

With the Makerspace and LUG closed until further notice, I decided to take a trip down memory lane…….. again.

Ten years ago, the LUG had not yet formed the Makerspace and meetings still revolved around Linux. This week, Les provided the write up:-

Hi everyone

Great session today, I enjoyed chatting to Bob about his Linux
experience. Bob, welcome to the LUG, as I said, if there is anything
that you would like to do or see at the LUG, then just ask.

Mark & Bob
The joggler is a fantastic hobby gadget, £50 until the end of May and it
can run Ubuntu from a USB stick! It does only run on mains power, but
don’t let that put you off as there are loads of hacks that can be done
to this device, turning it from a lowly picture frame into a full blown
atom based PC.
What I like the most is the flexibility of the gadget, I can do what I
want with it (I’m actually thinking of using it as a fileserver for my
1TB external drive).
Anyway for more info follow the link below.

Also, especially for Bob, here is the Myth TV frontend for the joggler
that we discussed.

If you haven’t heard, or just not booked a place yet

Barcamp Blackpool is a FREE event at Blackpool Pleasure Beach Casino
(the White Tower, for all us oldies 😉 ) on the 3rd of July.
If you want to come along, then please grab a FREE ticket!
There will be free tea and coffee, lunch, swag and an evening do if you
fancy, all for £0.00p.
The event is called an “unconference” where people turn up and do a talk
on their chosen subject (tech related mainly).
You don’t have to talk, just grab a ticket, turn up and enjoy the day.

Tony, Mike and myself are looking to set up an Ubuntu booth to show off
Ubuntu to the attendees, and provide free cds!
If you are interested in helping, shout up.

Well thats all folks.
