General Meeting on Wednesday - 13 May 2015
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials, displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights, or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event.

The basics portion will be on Alpine by Lee Lammert

Alpine is a free software email client developed at the University of Washington.

Alpine is a rewrite of the Pine Message System that adds support for Unicode and other features. Alpine is meant to be suitable for both inexperienced email users and the most demanding of power users. Alpine can be learned by exploration and the use of context-sensitive help. The user interface can be customized.
