Tue Mar 1 14:23:57 CST 2016

The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, March 8.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


    Brad Vokey will be doing a presentation on Thunderbird, a
    free, open source, cross platform email, news, and chat client
    developed by the Mozilla Foundation. Brad will focus on how to
    customize Thunderbird with extensions (and other little known
    features) to take this email client into power user territory.

    Topics will include the extensions: Keyconfig, Nostalgy,
    QuickFolders, Quicktext Pro, Signature Switch, Xnote, and
    Expression Search. He will also briefly cover tags, message
    filters, search folders, and other built-in tricks to help
    reduce the time you have to spend on email each day.

    New Segment: Daemon-Dash

    MUUG is proud to announce a new segment that has been dubbed:
    Daemon-Dash. The idea behind Daemon-Dash is to have a quick
    15-25 minute presentation on a daemon, and dive right into the
    meat of the content. DD's will forgo the usual introductory
    theory and use cases, instead showing users how to start using
    the daemon right away.

    Daemon-Dash: dnsmasq

    For our first ever Daemon-Dash segment, Paul Sierks will be
    presenting dnsmasq. Geared towards small networks, Dnsmasq
    provides DHCP, DNS, and TFTP services. Written in C, it
    features a small CPU and memory footprint making it suitable to
    run on just about anything, such as a home router. It has been
    adopted by some distributions which have it configured as a DNS
    cache. Other use cases include BOOTP and PXE network booting.

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 *NEW* meeting location for this month: *Room 3M60*
    (3rd floor) Manitoba Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on
    Ellice Ave. between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
