  • Update: This demo and very brief talk did not take place as planned due to not having a needed component. Sorry about that. I will have decided to postpone this presentation till later due to some business commitments.

Mel will be giving a 20 min talk that covers some updates to the ongoing quest for the modern, snazzy and increasingly easier to run and maintain Laptop and Work Station System. This will be a limited history with some speculations as to what may be next in the first quarter of 2015 update pack. It’s not an install demo

Live bare metal demo is planned at the meeting. SolydK Linux 2014-07 64bit. -More up to date system succeeded in video hardware acceleration and modern copy on write file system available including larger workstation with nVidia card. Sorry, I’m not bringing my workstation, but a lighter one instead.

Other talks are welcome. Bring your ideas and research!

Meeting is open to members and non-members. Free to all.

Our president has advised to expect meetings on for the first Wednesday of the month unless otherwise informed.
