Recent Meetings...

Meetings usually take place the 1st and 2nd Thursday of the month. Members should abide by the BLUG code of conduct.
Microsoft and Apple are well-known bitter enemies. So it's no wonder that there's no obvious way to get their operating systems to cooperate. Luckily, it's easy to get a Penguin to watch over them and make them play nice with others.
It has been said many times that Apache is the world's most popular webserver. Because it lacks a GUI environment it may not appear as friendly to a newcomer as it's commercial rivals.
In a situation where a single computer is used, all files are often stored on the local disk. When the computer is part of a network of workstations, it is often advantageous to have the workstations share files across the network.
Qmail is a secure, reliable, efficient, simple message transfer agent. It is meant as a replacement for the entire sendmail-binmail system on typical Internet-connected UNIX hosts.
This somewhat impromptu demonstration involved installing Linux on a box and simulating a connection to another Linux box over a dedicated telephone line using PPP. (Well, with a little help from the audience we got through most of this!)
VMware is software that runs multiple virtual computers on a single PC--at the same time--without partitioning or rebooting. Really.
Can nerds really have fun? BLUG's first annual year-end party, where BLUGers can meet in a relaxed atmosphere, have a beer, and talk about their favorite subject--Linux!
An introduction to Apache setup and administration under Red Hat Linux. Greg is a networking instructor at Bellingham Technical College. This is sure to be a popular night!
This meeting should be a great follow-up to last month's meeting where Greg demonstrated the Apache Web server. PHP is a server-side scripting language for creating dynamic Web pages. PHP integrates with Apache and HTML.
A final organizational meeting before Linux Fest.
Linux demonstrations, advice, and Linux software give-aways! Open to the community; drop by and see what all the talk is about!
Topics and demonstrations:
  - Home Networking and Firewalls
  - Linux on the Desktop
A demonstration of the Corel Office Suite running on Linux (of course!). Word processing, spreadsheeting, and presentation graphics that rival MS Office!
RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives) is a method of combining several disks to form one larger virtual disk. Depending on the configuration, this virtual drive can provide increased data safety and/or increased performance.
