Okay NMGLugers. How about re-phasing to allow Mark to join us more easily.
In an entirely unofficial poll at last night's meeting there were no
objections and 3 of 6 were in favor. We can reply to the list to see how
everybody feels about this. If agreed we would have to pick a start date,
but that is easy enough.
Also Art B. will be giving us more information on the typesetting program
and Markdown(a markup language) at a future meeting. Otherwise we had a
good discussion which was wide ranging, including some off topic. Let me
here remind the Free Software Foundation and ItsFOSS as places to immerse
oneself in Free Software. Though I am afraid many of us are less pure about
this than we might be. I know I fail the purity test from time to time.
I just checked out the new address at 'nmgl.ug' - not sure a Ugandan host
is going to be any quicker than other hosting. This was arranged by Sam to
forward to Nnmglug.org. It does work, no apparent delay. Interesting.
Thank you, Ted P
