The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, September 12.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   CDS Technologies - Wireless Networks

   This month, Dolores Pirrie, Information Technology Specialist with CDS
   Technologies, will present the company and the capabilities it has.
   CDS Technologies specializes in wireless network connectivity. What
   that means for the public and private sector, is that there is no
   longer a need to cable offices! For example, if a company is highly
   mobile, they would normally have to cable an office every time they
   move. This can become extremely costly. With CDS, a company could go
   wireless and if they move they would simply take the equipment with
   them and set up in the new surroundings! It really is that simple. The
   other facet of this business is the building to building connectivity.
   They are capable of connecting two or more sites together, wirelessly,
   for distances up to 25 km apart! All of this is achieved at speeds of
   11Mbps per second.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location:  IBM Canada's offices in the TD
   Centre, at the corner of Portage and Main. We gather in the lobby on
   the main floor - please try to be there by about 7:15 PM. Steve Moffat
   will then take us up to the meeting room just before the meeting
   starts at 7:30. Don't be late, or you may not get in.

   Parking is available either in the parkade behind the TD building,
   off Albert Street, or in the ground level lot just north of the TD
   building. Entrance to the lot is from Albert Street, behind the
   parkade. Either way, parking is a $1.25 flat rate for the evening.
   You purchase your ticket from a dispenser, so make sure you've got
   exact change - a loonie and a quarter, or 5 quarters.
