Hi there, Markus.  I'd almost but not quite stopped using my temporary
e-mail address, rick at deirdre.net, now that my server is back online.
Please note my real e-mail address.

> here the description for the X2go presentation, I wonder if I forgot
> anything.  [snip]

Thanks.  I have entered this verbatim into the Upcoming Meetings page,
about which more below.

> When would the talk take place? 

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015, 7-9 PM.  Summary info is displayed on the
front page (http://www.svlug.org/)  If you follow the link there on the
phrase 'General Meeting', you will see detailed information on upcoming
scheduled meetings, including yours.

Please note that we would very much appreciate a couple of words for the
'About the Speaker' part of the description.  Also, I very slightly
changed the wording of your talk description to put it into the third
person rather than the first person.  (The convention of our meeting
announcements is that they are about the talk, but not that they are the
words of the presenter.)

> also, did I already miss the one scheduled for February?

No, not at all.

The normal meeting date for February _would_ have been the 1st
Wednesday, which was Wednesday, February 4th.  However, Symantec was
unable to make the facility available on that day, so we reserved it for
Tuesday, February 17th.  (This is mentioned on our front page.)

> Is there a mailing list that announces the talks as they happen that
> I can be on to be in the loop?

Yes.  I need to give you a two-part answer on that.

1.  The 'svlug-announce' mailing list is an ultra-terse
announcements-only mailing list that sends out _only_ announcements
about upcoming SVLUG meetings.  Normally, that would be one posting per

In this rare case, I sent out to svlug-announce an announcement just
before the normal Wednesday, Feb. 4th date/time to say that there would
_not_ be a meeting that day, because of venue reservation problems, and
that the February meeting would be on a one-time date, Tuesday, February

2.  If you subscribe to the main SVLUG discussion mailing list, 'svlug',
then you will receive all svlug-announce traffic _on_ the 'svlug'
mailing list.  Thus, there is never any point to subscribing to the
-announce list if you are on the main discussion list.

Sign-up links, with access to other features such as back-posting
archives, are easily found from the front SVLUG Web page, but here are
direct URLs:
