After Work Snack & Hack Recap / PGP/GPG Key Signing Party

Today we had a great meeting of the CharLUG with a lot of interesting discussions It seems that over the last meetings some topics always came up.

First of all virtualization. This seems to be the hot topic for everybody. Folks like to test and play around with OS's in a VM and it opens up opportunities to try things that otherwise were really hard to do. I didn't take a real poll but it seems that most people favor VirtualBox on the desktop, but VMware is still very popular.

Snack & Hack Day And Time Change

The time and day for the Snack & Hack changed. The new time is the first Thursday of the month at 6:30. Please check our meeting page for updates.

Installfest on Saturday, April 2, 2011

It's getting closer. On Saturday, 10:00am our installfest will start at the Hackspace. Everybody is welcome to bring their machine and we will be happy to help and guide you through the installation and setup of Linux.

But the installfest has now an additional focus.


The CharLUG is currently preparing for an installfest.

What is an installfest?
Wikipedia has a nice definition:
An Installfest (a portmanteau of installation and festival) is an event, generally sponsored by a local Linux User Group, university or LAN party, at which people get together to do mass installations of computer operating systems or software, most often Linux and other open source software.
