General Meeting on Wednesday - 12 October 2016
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.
