General Elections in February 2015
Members that had attended two or more of any of our meetings (includes the general meeting, steering committee and Special Interest Groups) during the 2014 calendar year are eligible to vote for the Board members and Officers that run our organization. Ballots will be available at every SLUUG sponsored meeting through out the month of February. Eligible members unable to attend can mail in an absentee ballot to address shown at top of ballot.

There are two seats up for election to our 5 member board. They are for 3 year terms. Our Officers are appointed by the board; but, we traditionally include an advisory vote on the ballot for these positions as well.
Also, we will have our short official annual meeting during the general SLUUG meeting on the 2nd Wednesday in February at Graybar. This is a formality in our bylaws. SLUUG is a 501(c)6 professional association corporation.

General Meeting on Wednesday - 11 February 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 Regular Expressions by Craig Buchek

Abstract/Background/Details/History/Outline/Summary/Walkthrough will be listed when available.

Our main event will be Lightning Talks

This Wednesday, February 11, 2015, SLUUG (St. Louis UNIX Users Group) is proud to announce our (intermittent) annual Lightning Talks. Come see various members talk about various topics. Come and talk about a topic of interest to you. Want to practice talking in front of a group? Want to try out a topic to see if it would make a good full-length talk? It doesn't even have to be technical. No slides required (but slides or videos are welcome).

Examples of some excellent Lightning Talks we've seen at various groups in the past few years:
* Let me code (sung to the tune of Frozen's "Let It Go")
* How to pose for a photograph
* The secret to success - high fives
* Why Galileo was a bad-ass
* Johnny Appleseed was actually a speculator

No need to sign up. Just show up at the meeting. If you want to schedule something, submit your title by

SCHEDULE (Sequence subject to change):
0. Official SLUUG Annual meeting (can we break our record?)
1. An Appropriate TED Talk {10 minutes}
2. 41 slides~ @14.6 sec each, instead of "What Is Linux" 90 minute presentation
3. Catfeeder 2.0 on a Raspberry Pi by Paul Bergland
4. 40 plus cartoons (mostly), instead of "Why Use Linux" 90 minute presentation
5. To Be Determined by Craig Bucheck

Updates to this schedule will be made as frequently as possible.

Opinions, Rants, Slides, Talks or Videos should be limited to 10 minutes, or less. We have a "GONG" sound file, and we know how to use it!
