Linux-SIG April 15, 2013:
The April meeting was pretty much up in the air. I had ongoing issues working with VNC on the Raspberry Pi plus company visiting. I was at the clubhouse Monday evening and we discussed very interesting links. Bring questions cause all together we are really smart and everybody learns.
I had requests for Grub 1 and 2. That may possibly happen in May.
