Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room T117
Remind: The UNIX Geek's Ultimate Calendar Tool
Speaker: David Skoll
Remind started out as an MS-DOS-based replacement for the UNIX calendar command. Since then, it has grown into a ridiculously-flexible calendar and reminder system. While Remind remains a true old-style UNIX command-line tool, various back-ends add graphical interfaces and Postscript output so even die-hard GUI fans can feel comfortable with Remind. This talk will cover the basics of Remind and give you a taste for some advanced Remind programming.

ASUS eeePC: Low Cost, High Value Laptop
Speaker: Pat Suwalski
The eeePC is a new, low-cost, high value, and ultra-portable laptop from ASUS. It features several unique design elements, and it ships by default with a custom-blended Linux distribution based on Debian. Many features of the operating system have been optimized for this hardware, resulting in a very fast embedded-style Linux. Between its cost, choice if software, and form factor, this gadget should be of interest to many OCLUG members.
