  • May Beginner's Workshop: Scribus Tutorial   4 years 10 weeks ago

    Please indicate finishing time of meeting and change address to 110 Grey Street.

  • Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred   4 years 15 weeks ago

    Looks like a great book with lots of experiments and projects for kids to play.
    My only question is, are kids (10+ years old) capable of following the step-by-step instructions in this book by themselves without the help from an adult?
    I'd be willing to gift this to my kids and it would be great if they could play both together and not having me to do the 'hard stuff'. hehe

    Thanks in advance, and great review.
    Cheers.

  • Game Physics Engine Development   4 years 18 weeks ago

    Hello

    I’m working on game development magazine – Game Coder Mag Physics – aimed mostly at professionals and those who study to work in the field of game development in the future.

    I’m looking for authors for the next issue devoted to collision detection. But if You would like to chose other topic there won't be a problem. Please let me know if you'd be interested in writing an article for the magazine by mail adam.robakiewicz@software.com.pl

  • September Beginner's Workshop and Software Freedom Day   4 years 45 weeks ago

    Over the past couple of years I have burned a lot of CDs and DVDs of linux distributions - artistx, clonezilla, puppy etc etc. Many of them I no longer use. So if I brought them along I could hand them out or give a talk about them in combination with handing them out. Virus free, md5 sums checked. I would be happy to bring them if you want me too. I probably have about a dozen CDs.

  • March Beginner's Workshop   5 years 22 weeks ago

    Cheers

  • February Beginner's Workshop   5 years 22 weeks ago

    Hello Tony

    Apologies for not following up how you went with the Ubuntu Install on 19 Feb. As you may have noticed, I was scheduled to give a talk and got caught up with it.

    How ever I would like to encourage you to come again on March 19 same time and I spend some time resolving any problem you may have and answer to any question you may have, as I will have more free time on the day.

    Furthermore, I hope there will be other members available to help. We had an unusual series of personal circumstances which made it impossible for many Members to be present at the last workshop. Hopefully it wont happen again.

    Cheers
    Daniel.

  • March Beginner's Workshop   5 years 22 weeks ago

    equivalent group in Pasadena Califonria usa?
    or Los Angeles

  • February Beginner's Workshop   5 years 25 weeks ago

    Hi Tony.

    it depends which particular Linux version you want. Usually someone will have Ubuntu, Fedora or perhaps another one there.

    If you want a particular one, just let me know and I see if I can get it.

    Alternatively you can get it on latest Linux mags CDs at your news agent or recent APC mags (perhaps at a council library near you).

    Cheers
    Daniel.

  • LUV Annual General Meeting   5 years 26 weeks ago

    I beg your indulgence if you would allow a new member to do a lightening talk this evening on "toonlet: your own XKCD in minutes" if you can fit me in. Strictly for fun. See you this evening.

  • December Beginner's Workshop   5 years 33 weeks ago

    would love to see how to set up / configure Asterisk and TrixBox

  • Beginner's Workshop   5 years 41 weeks ago

    I guess if you want to discuss questions beforehand, the luv-beginners list would be the best place to do it - as you can see, the website forums are not very active (and we the moderators are not very quick at approving posts).

    The mobile broadband depends on the particular broadband USB you have - for most of them, it's very easy, but a couple of them simply don't have drivers - the manufacturers don't care - and those can be either more difficult or impossible. If you bring it to the workshop, we can quickly find out which one is the case.

    With 22" monitor, that's a bit harder to bring to the workshop, but we can at least show you where to look for the configuration tool and how to work with it.

    As for anti-virus / malware, it's indeed true that in practice, nothing is needed. Generally, Linux only has anti-virus / malware software for situations when it's acting as a server for MS Windows computers, and it needs to scan e-mails before delivering them or scan files on shared drives.
