ALE July 30 cookout meeting

Filed at 11:55 am under by jkinney

July 30 starting around 4pm

Bring something to grill and the family (kids very welcome). I’ll (JimK) be making some sides. Adult beverages with responsibility are certainly welcome. Note the preponderance of “beer snobs” in ALE these days – so that Bud Light you were thinking about bringing will go home with you afterwards.

Note: my house is also inhabited by 4 cats. If you have allergies, you’ve been warned.

Email Jim Kinney off list for the address.

ALE Central Meeting, March 17, 2016 7:30 pm

Filed at 4:44 pm under by jkinney

Lightning Talks!

So how about the meeting attendees come with their own 1-2 minute topic of how Linux is used by them to get something done. Maybe the first project you did using Linux that convinced you Linux was a tool that you wanted to know more about.

As Thursday is St. Patrick’s day, we will certainly adjourn to Melton’s for libations. The crowd there may be larger than normal.

Please email Jim or JD off list ASAP if you want to present.
