The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, October 11.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Mini-HowTo Topics: MBR Rescue and Dropbox

   What happens when you trash your MBR? Rob Keizer will discuss
   ways to get your system up and running again quickly.

   Dropbox is a free file sharing service with client support
   for Windows, MacOS X, Linux, and even some mobile platforms.
   It lets you automatically replicate files to any of your
   configured clients, share them with other users, or access
   them from the web. Gilbert Detillieux will show Dropbox in use,
   and show the installation of client software under Linux.

   Before the break, as this month's RTFM topic, Michael Doob will
   talk about using the rsync(1) command.

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.
