This month we will be having an informal talk on recent legal news regarding open source software by Adam Saunders.

There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 17:30 to 18:30 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.

After the main talk, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a standard offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.

September Meeting: Open Topics and Swap Meet

We do not have a specific topic this evening, so it is a free forum night. If you have questions, bring them and perhaps the collective experience of the group will be able to answer them.

In addition, this will be a hardware swap meet. If you have some unused hardware lying about, you can bring it along and see if anyone is interested in taking it away to a new home.

Given the new location and short notice, we will not be having the pre-meeting help session, however that does not mean we will not entertain such questions as part of the general meeting.

We will also entertain ideas for future meetings and volunteer speakers.
