SF-LUG meets every first Sunday from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M.
at the Cafe Enchante, 26th and Geary Boulevard.
These meetings are usually lightly attended with a high
for the year so far of 6 members.
If you have a problem come along, maybe we can help
but if not we can usually find someone who can.
At the June 18th meeting:
Well I was pleased to see two other members
there at the Cafe Enchante on Monday evening
about 5:55 PM.
Alex Kleider was there with a distinctive
accessory which seems to have something to
do with networking. The young man Roman
was working on getting his machine working
at some task it seems.
I fired up the Presario but I was unable to
demonstrate the very impressive Mandriva 2012
Tech Preview due to problems beyond my apprehension.
Since then I have upgraded to Mandriva 2011.
My WiFi had been shut down somehow again
but by booting up a version of Knoppix I was able
to connect and to turn the WiFi card back on.
I hope Alex will explain a bit about the device
he was using. I was too preoccupied with my problems
to really get the name and function of the device.
Alex asked me why I was changing distributions
so often. I pointed out that this was a mis-apprehension
on his part. I enjoy trying out new distributions and seeing
how completely they work with my machine. But
Mandriva remains my working distribution.
Eric Porter showed up eventually and he and I
rode homeward on the 38 Geary. This was after 7:30 PM
and we found that the trip seemed shorter with someone
to whom we could talk.
A fuller answer for Alex will be in his mail shortly.
