**EEEK! NERDS? WHERE?!?***
on that note, I just got a suggestion from a new member, who is new to
Linux, that we cater more to new users at the meetings. This is a fair
call, and he's not the first person to mention that sometimes it gets a
bit nerdy at meetings. Friday's talks from Jamie and Tridge were great,
but they were definitely HARDCORE!
So, to paraphrase this new member (who shall remain anonymous), let's
issue a challenge to THE LOUD PEOPLE UP THE BACK (and others):
*PLEASE* offer to do a talk at SLUG where you show new users
your favourite tricks and tips, or get people up to speed with
your favourite tools.
We've had some interesting talks like that recently: Andre's intro to zsh
and jdub's Email Dream Team come to mind. As Jamie says, we're all newbies
to something. So please, whether you've been using Linux and Unix for
years or even if you're pretty new to it, we've all got some advice to
If you would like to give a talk, please either mail the slug list with
the details, or discuss it with the committee <committee@xxxxxxxxxxx>.
We'll even shout you dinner afterwards to say thanks. Make it useful, but
don't be shy. If you think your topic sounds too simple, it's perfect :)
(sorry for shouting on a Monday morning :)
