The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, February 12.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   KDE 4.0

   KDE consists of an international technology team that creates many
   software products. KDE is one of the largest open source projects in
   existence, with several thousand contributors worldwide. On January
   11th, KDE 4.0 was released to the world after several years of
   redevelopment  which  includes  a  number of major advances in
   technology and portability.

   Many  of  the  features  and  capabilities  of KDE 4.0 will be
   demonstrated, with special attention being paid to those features
   which are interesting to those in attendance. KDE's history and
   community organization will be discussed, including information
   sources for those that are interested in tracking the development
   of KDE.

   Troy Unrau will be presenting on behalf of the KDE project. Troy
   is a part-time coder and a member of KDE's Marketing Working Group.
   During the day, he is an undergraduate geophysics student at the
   University of Manitoba.

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.
