September 2013 meeting

Hi guys!

I am very pleased to announce that the next meeting will be held at QinetiQ’s Haslar site at 1pm on the 7th September.

We will have limited network access (i.e. a few people may have mobile broadband) so please do not expect to be able to do installs or updates from the web.

To keep our security guys happy can you please register your interest with me by email (chairman@hantslug.org.uk) no later than Wednesday 4th September.

For our April meeting, we are privileged to be hosted at IBM Hursley. For those who haven't been before it's a great opportunity.  Note that the start time is yet to be decided — watch this space and/or the mailing list for more information.

The plan is to hold the Easter debate at this meeting, but we need some speakers. The topic is (broadly) "The Future of Linux". The exact topics covered are at the discretion of the speakers, but there's plenty to go at, from mobile-space to server-space, SystemD to the Desktop.
