The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 9.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Blogging and Podcasting with WordPress and podPress

   WordPress is an open-source content management system for setting up
   blogs and websites. It's fairly compact and very easy to set up on a
   web server that supports PHP and MySQL. With the addition of the
   podPress plugin (a "dream plugin for Podcasters using WordPress"),
   you have all you need to set up an audio or video podcast feed that
   is RSS2 and iTunes compatible.

   In  this  presentation,  Gilbert Detillieux will describe this
   software,  show  some  of the trickier parts of setting up the
   prerequisite  software,  walk  us through the installation and
   configuration of WordPress and podPress, and end off with an initial
   posting to a shiny new podcast feed.

   This month's RTFM topic will be on DNS resolution. Sean Cody will
   discuss and demonstrate some tools for DNS resolution in UNIX and
   some lookup tools such as dig(1), host(1) and nslookup(1).

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm 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: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
