The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, March 13.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Usenet News Readers

   This month, MUUG member Chris Hill will be giving us a look at Usenet.
   The session will cover a brief history of the Usenet and news groups,
   how to get a new news group assigned in the hierarchy, how to use news
   readers such as Pine, Pan, and possibly others, what uuencode is, what
   the binaries news groups are, and the meanings of the hierarchies.

   We're also expecting a talk from an IBM representative on IBM's Linux
   strategy, particularly in regard to Linux running on mainframes. Think
   of thousands of copies of Linux running under VM on one mainframe!

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location:  IBM Canada's offices in the TD
   Centre, at the corner of Portage and Main. We gather in the lobby on
   the main floor - please try to be there by about 7:15 PM. Steve Moffat
   will then take us up to the meeting room just before the meeting
   starts at 7:30. Don't be late, or you may not get in.

   Parking is available either in the parkade behind the TD building,
   off Albert Street, or in the ground level lot just north of the TD
   building. Entrance to the lot is from Albert Street, behind the
   parkade. Either way, parking is a $1.25 flat rate for the evening.
   You purchase your ticket from a dispenser, so make sure you've got
   exact change - a loonie and a quarter, or 5 quarters.
