Hull LUG (Linux User Group)

Hull LUG LogoAt the last meeting of Hull Digital (see left side-bar) I received information about the Hull LUG (Linux User Group).

‘Linux’ refers to a group of computer operating systems that are offered as free and open source software. And the Hull (and East Riding) LUG is a group for those using or interested in using Linux. The group also discusses and shares information on open source software and other computing issues.

Hull LUG meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 8:00pm. The next meeting takes place on Tuesday 7th July 2009, 8:00pm at:

The Old Grey Mare, Cottingham Road, Hull, HU5 2EG

I know some of the characters involved – including 90 year old Theo, so I can vouch that they are a friendly bunch!

Note: For more information about Linux see Linux Online.

For those wanting a simple guide to free and open source software then have a look at these portable document files stored on Box.Net which are produced by the ICT Hub and one particularly good document produced by the Non-Profit Open Source Initiative aimed at voluntary and community groups: VCS_FOSS Information.

    Although I am reminded of a quote from the film Pulp Fiction where The Wolfe said:

    Just because you are a character doesn’t mean that you have character.

    Of course the members of Hull LUG have both (I think)
