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


   GnuCash is a free software accounting program for personal and small
   business use. It runs on multiple UNIX-like platforms.

   The presentation will cover some of GnuCash's features and also
   double as a fast introduction to bookkeeping. Potentially covered:
   account types, double-entry accounting, reports, invoices, bills,
   employee expenses, scheduled transactions, loan calculations, and
   demystifying "debit" and "credit."

   The presenter, Mark Jenkins, is a recent graduate of the Computer
   Science Honours program at the University of Manitoba. Mark has
   contributed a very small bug-fix patch to GnuCash but expects to
   contribute  more  in  the next year; his employer, ParIT Worker
   Co-operative, recently received a grant that will fund additional

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 $3.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
