The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, May 8.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Gordon Meyer's Smart Home Hacks

   Learn how to put your computer to work around the house.  Gordon's
   presentation will get you started with the basics of do-it-yourself
   home automation, then cover the most practical, fun, and interesting
   techniques culled from around the globe.  Drawn from the best of "Smart
   Home Hacks", you're sure to find at least one that suits your lifestyle.
   If you're new to home automation, you'll get on the fast track to the
   most useful methods.  If you're an old hand, you'll leave with tips and
   inspiration for upgrading your home.

   Gordon Meyer is a Chicago-based writer and speaker who has authored
   dozens of software manuals, numerous articles for computer users and
   technical writers, and O'Reilly's "Smart Home Hacks", a leading book on
   do-it-yourself home automation techniques.  Gordon, an amateur magician
   and a frequent speaker at technical conferences, touts a practical,
   lighthearted, and humanized approach to integrating technology with
   daily life.

   Meeting Location: For this month only, the meeting will be held at
   the Millennium Library, in the Carol Shields Auditorium (on the second
   floor).  The Millennium Library is at the corner of Graham Ave. and
   Donald St.  (251 Donald St.)  Parking is $5 for the evening in the
   Library's underground lot, and $2-$5 elsewhere in the area.  Meeting
   time is 7:30pm, as usual.
