Holiday Meeting: Your Tips as Community Gifts
6:45 PM, Suspenders Restaurant
111 Broadway in Manhattan
Last December (http://www.nycbug.org/index.php?NAV=Home;SUBM=10239), we
had a useful and fun meeting with a variety of speakers presenting their
day-to-day hacks: small methods and tools that save time and hassles.
This year, we`ll do the same.
So get ready and think of one or two small hacks that save you time.
Maybe it`s saved a few minutes a day, maybe it`s saved your job.
And with the holiday season, it`s a great time to give back to the
The life you may be saving might be someone you actually like!
Submit your proposed hack or two with the Add Content tab
(http://www.nycbug.org/index.php?NAV=Add%20Content), select "I want to
give a meeting" as the "type of submission," and we can add you to the
announce mailing list
what="official invitation to Debian Install Fest"
and="This will be an Install Fest, but it is also
a general gathering for those who wish
to learn and teach about Debian, so it is called
Debian-NYC Novice Night"
note="Please write to address@hidden or to
address@hidden if you intend to show up,
so Eyebeam and/or Debian-NYC will have
a count of people expected; if you do not write
you will, likely, anyway be welcomed
into the Fellowship of Debian GNU/Linux."

Subject: [Debian-NYC] Invitation to Debian-NYC Novice Night
Debian-NYC would like to invite you to our next Novice Night.
Novice Nights are Debian-NYC's meetings for everyone. If you would
like to install Debian, come on by. If you would like help with
configuring or making Debian do what you need, we can do that too. If
you want to hang out with Debianistas to pick up tips and tricks, come
on by. We can also provide some help with other derivatives of Debian,
such as Ubuntu.
Novice Nights are free-form: bring your questions, and you'll be able
to talk to people to answer them. There isn't a set structure here or
presentation, so you can come and go as you would like. There may be
mini-presentations throughout the night. We will be able to help with
new installations or fixing/configuring existing ones. We can make
installation CDs or USB drives. You should bring your computers you
would like help on (and your friends!).
We welcome groups. If you have a group attending, feel free to contact
us in advance so that we can prepare something for you. If you have
questions, please direct them to Richard Darst <rkd at zgib dot net>.
Where and When: Eyebeam, Wednesday, December 1st, 2010, 18:00.
Getting there: See Eyebeam directions. Eyebeam is on the west side of
Manhattan, in Chelsea. A/C/E/1/2/L trains are the closest.
