The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, February 21.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   UNIX at Work, UNIX at Home

   Once upon a time there was a LAN, a LAN where chaos reigned... OK, maybe
   it wasn't quite that dramatic, but the early days of networking were quite
   different  than  today  for  Gilbert  Detillieux, a system and network
   administrator  for the University of Manitoba's department of Computer
   Science for over 16 years. In this mini-presentation, in what we hope will
   become a semi-regular series of UNIX at Work/Home presentations, Gilbert will
   describe how the LAN-scape changed over those years at the University, and
   the role UNIX has played in taming the wild frontier of the Internet.

   Starting from scratch with your home network? Where do you start? Where
   do you  go from here? Kevin McGregor is dealing with these very issues in
   setting up a network in his new home. He will cover hardware and software,
   clients  and servers, backups, data integrity, network infrastructure,
   cabling plants and much more, all in less than 30 minutes!

   Note: We have changed the date for this month's meeting to the 3rd
   Tuesday, so that folks can spend Valentine's Day with their sweethearts.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm 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: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.)

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, or in a lot
   across Ellice from IBM, for $1.00 for the evening. Indoor parking is
   also available nearby, at Portage Place, for $2.00 for the evening.

Also note that MUUG maintains two mailing lists, called "muug-announce"
and "roundtable".  If you're not already on these lists, we encourage you
to subscribe now:


The "muug-announce" list is used for monthly meeting announcements (such
as this one) as well as other important announcements of interest to MUUG

The "rountable" list is meant to be a forum for follow-ups to topics
discussed at the meetings, or for round-table-style discussion on other
topics that come up between meetings.  Of course, for this to be effective,
we need to reach a certain critical mass.  So, please subscribe, and stay
