Apologies for the site being somewhat broken. I'm actively working on this after doing a full migration, so you'll notice many things aren't working right or have disappeared altogether. Don't worry, nothing is lost and everything will be back in place as soon as I can get to it.
Update (Nov. 10, 2011): The contact form is back online. Apologies for it being broken. The user registration is still offline. It will be fixed as soon as possible.
Call for books
Seasons greetings from TALUG!
As many of you know, TALUG has loaned out books in the past. These books have been free to borrow with the promise that they be returned at the next meeting so that others may have a chance to borrow it as well.
Unfortunately, due to us not keeping track of who we lent books out to, and not asking folks to bring them back in, we're now down to only a few books left in our library.
I would like to take this opportunity to ask any of you who borrowed books from us in the past to please bring them back at the next meeting. We would like to build up our library again, and in the future, once we have enough books, we will be implementing a system to keep track of who has which book.
No, We're Not Dead
No, TALUG is not dead. :)
We're currently working on a new site, which will make content much easier to manage and update more often. As you all know, sometimes, real life tends to get in the way, and it takes priority. Sit tight, meeting details for July's meeting to come soon.
No March 2012 Meeting
There will not be a March 2012 meeting. The library's meeting rooms are completely booked solid for March, so we're giving you all a month off. Hey, it's been warm lately. Take a break, go outside, and get your sunshine +1. See you in April.
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.
