*** Please note the updated meeting location below ***

The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, March 14 (Pi Day).  The meeting topic for this month 
is as follows:

    Daemon-Dash: Pi-hole

    Pi-hole turns your Raspberri Pi (or other supported devices)
    into a network-wide ad blocker, using DNS redirection. It promises
    to block over 100,000 ad-serving domains, improve overall network
    performance and reduce cellular data usage, on any device. Gilbert
    Detillieux will demonstrate the installation process and typical
    use of Pi-hole on a Raspberry Pi (after all, it is Pi Day!) and
    describe some pros and cons of the installation method used, as
    well as some pros and cons of using an ad blocker on your network.

    RTFM: shred

    This month's RTFM will be presented by Wyatt Zacharias, who will
    talk about the shred(1) command, which allows you to overwrite
    a file to hide its contents, and optionally delete it.

The group usually holds its 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 1L11*
    Lockhart 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.
