This month we will be having a talk on on making a rotary phone useful in a tone driven world and a discussion on os-agnostic computing.
There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.
After Meeting Social:
After the meeting, there will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.
After the main talk there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.
This talk is based on a recent desire to put an old rotary phone in my guest room. This is part of a larger project, but first the phone.
Some simple electronics for those interested and an ATTINY45 chip to be the dialer.
Many of us have strong preferences for particular operating systems. However, much of the work we do does not require any particular operating system, and some of us have to work with more than one operating system, or with several systems at once. This short presentation will cover cross-platform portability for data and applications. It will be followed by a discussion about what should be covered in a more detailed second presentation about OS-agnostic computing.
Do you have an idea about how to promote Linux and Open Source Software in Ottawa? OCLUG may be able to help with up to $500 towards your expenses.
For the months of February, March, and April we will be meeting in Building P, room P213a. This building is directly south of parking lots 8,9, and 12.
