September 2017 This month I host five TBTC meetings:
1on1 Chromebook Support meets September 14 @ 10 am. Bring your Chromebook and we’ll help you to do whatever you like. Or if you’re thinking about a Chromebook, come play with my to see how it works. We always have coffee and good conversation.
The Linux SIG meets Monday September 18 @ 7 pm. Last month I had my $99 Pinebook laptop that had issues with Android and Ubuntu Mate. I’ve now installed Q4OS, a very-lightweight distro that works well and installs on most hardware and reminds me of Puppy Linux.. I plan to showoff neofetch, a neat terminal utility and discuss these recent Linux Links.
The Tinkerer SIG meeting is September 21 @ 1 pm. I’m building a digital sign using a $35 RaspberryPi. Hopefully we can attract more fellow tinkerers. September TLinks
The Chrome SIG meets September 28 @ 10 am. We talk Chromebooks here and how they’ve become the ideal inexpensive mainstream computer for education, business and home users. At this meeting I’ll show how to dual boot Linux on a Chromebook. Chrome Links
In October we’ll get back to Free and Open Source alternative to proprietary closed source programs. FOSS Links
