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


   Today, instant messaging is taken for granted. We use it to stay in
   constant contact with our friends and colleagues. There are some
   environments where it is not feasible or practical to use external
   IM services in a corporate environment. Like most things, there is
   an Open Source solution for that. In this case, we're talking about
   the Jabber instant messaging protocol.

   In this presentation, Darren Hildebrand and Sean Cody, from Prime
   Focus  VFX, will talk about the Jabber system and show how the
   eJabberd  implementation can be used to provide closed instant
   messaging  services in a secure, simple and client-application
   agnostic way. They will also discuss what logging, auditing and
   authentication options are available. If you were ever interested in
   replacing or providing AIM/MSN/ICQ/gTalk functionality in your
   workspace this presentation is for you.

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.
