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:

    Introducing Physical Computing

    Davidian Chorley will be our presenter this month. Introducing
    Physical Computing is a presentation on computing devices with
    GPIOs. General Purpose Input/Outputs allow interfacing with a huge
    variety of hardware. Davidian will discuss several platforms that
    implement GPIOs, why one might want to use them, his own projects
    and various common and creative uses for physical computing.
    Platforms covered are Raspberry Pi and Raspbian (Debian), Arduino
    (the device and IDE), and MBED programable devices from the ARM
    processor platform.

    Daemon-Dash: tinc

    For this month's Daemon-Dash segment, Mark Jenkins will present
    [13]tinc, "a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses
    tunnelling and encryption to create a secure private network
    between hosts on the Internet."

    Door Prizes

    On top of whatever else is on offer this month, we'll have a copy of
    "The Book of JavaScript", 2ed, by No Starch Press as a door prize.
    There will also be a Raspberry Pi Model B+ being drawn.

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 1M28*
       (1st 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.
