The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, September 13.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Revision Control for System Administrators

   If you've ever wished you could undo that change you made to
   httpd.conf, or wanted to know the difference between the
   sendmail config you're running today and what you had last
   month (back when it all worked properly, right?) then you need
   to learn about revision control software. Almost every *NIX
   install has a revision control package either installed or
   easily available; come find out how you can get better control
   over your files with almost no extra effort. We'll try to

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 $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
