How do I get there?
See the attached map. Parking is in lot 20, south of Palmer Hall.
See also UT's page on department locations and facilities.
It's "back to school" season, and that means we're doing our Linux beginner topic once again. This time, it's a brief history of GNU/Linux, including a small section on using the command-line and the filesystem layout. Different distributions will also be mentioned to give new users an idea of which one to choose, based on their needs.
Possible Meeting Location Change
As a heads-up to anyone planning on attending our monthly meetings from September onwards, we may possibly be moving our meeting location back to the university.
The move is for a few reasons: one, TALUG has a bit of history with UT, and we feel that it will also help us with advertising on campus.
Fall is the season for new students who may be looking to install a free and open-source *nix distribution on their laptops for school work. It's also the time where we have our annual "intro to Linux" meetings, so this is a great time to make this transition.
While you're reading this, yes, I know the site is in a bit of disrepair. Thanks goes to all of you who have been very patient while I work on the new site. Yes, it will arrive eventually. I'm just a very busy individual, and you all know how real life seems to always get in the way.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us, and thanks for your patience.
