September was not the last meeting we had. It was October, a brain storming session, and we approved the September minutes already.
No meeting in November. January 6, board gathering at Tim Hortons. No minutes kept.
RECAP of the January meeting speakers. Photo theme will partly continue in February. And Josh Bush "cheeze" will talk about the Australia Linux Conference.
Planning of event with CSSA in the Spring. MCR got into contact. Proposed to perhaps cancel May general meeting, and have and even in the last week of April. Maybe a quake fest: proves your laptop can do network, audio, and video...
Need to have plans to deal with people who aren't prepared; no backups for instance. Need to have info cards. Need original disks for any software you have. Need to have some alternative plans... assume it's important to bring windows users up to the clueful point where they can try linux. Removeable drives: USB-thumbdrive,USB-cdrom,USB-harddrive, blank-DVDs.blank-CDs. PICK August/September date/location before April event.
remind Ian about this. We said to go ahead with this.
ACTION: mcr to ask PC-Financial.
