The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, December 9.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Round-table, Gadget Showcase and Mix & Mingle

   With the usually active holiday season approaching, we'll take
   things at a more relaxed pace.  So, we'll give more time for the
   round-table discussion (rather than cutting it short as we had to
   last month), then instead of a very short coffee break, we'll have
   a more laid-back mingler with some holiday treats and more time for
   informal discussion.

   This will also be a geek gadget showcase! So, if you've got a cool
   (but portable) geek gadget to show off, bring it to the meeting.
   Want to show off that new Eee PC, or that iPhone, OpenMoko phone,
   or whatever new gadget?  Bring it along!  Does it run some flavour
   of UNIX or Linux?  Even better.  Is it open source?  Better still!

   We'll have time to show some things during the round-table
   discussion, if you need the data projector, or you can just show
   your gadget to small groups in the later part of the evening.

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.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $3.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
