Oak View Branch of the Siouxland Libraries in Sioux Falls, Room 3 at 6:30pm.


Remote Control: Secure Access in GNU/Linux

Dustin and Rob will demonstrate some secure remote access utilities for controlling Linux, Mac, and Windows boxes over the internet.

This is a demo night, so once Dustin and Rob are done, anyone can take the floor and show off some cool and useful software.

Asking the Right Questions -- New User session

Before the regular meeting, Glenn will present "Asking the Right Questions," which will give questions that new users should ask before diving into a Linux distribution. Anyone is welcome to jump in to share advice and experience.

The New User session is also a time for new users to seek help for any problems they may be having with the Linux learning curve.

Linux experts and novices are encouraged to attend this early session.

The room will open at 5pm.

Live CDs

We will have free bootable CDs for folks who want to try GNU/Linux without installing it on their computer. Distributions will include Linux Mint 9, Ubuntu 10.04, Kubuntu 10.04, Xubuntu 10.04, and various flavors of Debian.


To get to the Oak View branch from Sixth Street, turn north onto North Bahnson Ave. and drive three blocks to Third Street. The library is located at the northeast corner of the intersection.

From Sycamore Avenue, turn west on Third Street until you near the North Bahnson intersection (about six blocks). The library will be on your right.

There is no cost to attend the meeting or to join. New members are welcome!


On behalf of the SLUG, I would like to extend a big thank you to Dustin an Rob for their presentations on Thursday night.

Both bravely ventured into unknown territory -- using remote control software over the library's wireless connection -- and both succeeded!

Good job, guys!
