I just added some links for the Felton LUG in the SMAUG web page (see below). To join their mail list, go to


The Felton LUG has been tabling at the Felton Farmers Market, next to St John's Catholic Church, every Tuesday afternoon this summer. This will continue a little longer, assuming the Farmer's market management approves that.

I'll be at Cafe Pergolesi at the usual time tomorrow night, though I think a couple of our regulars may have taken off to DEFCON in Los Vegas.

I'll have some minor distros (on CD) to try out - antiX is an example, mostly Debian-based, with a lightweight desktop. Slax (based on Slackware) is another I like.

Some of these have a feature I really like - you can press a function key at boot time and specifically set the graphics resolution you want - this solves the problem of the software not being able to detect your graphics card or monitor capabilities properly.

See you (all?) Thursday at 7:30 pm at Cafe Pergolesi.

  It's completely normal that you lose data on "Windows" platforms.
  That's why you have a Linux/BSD/UNIX server for backups.
