The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 10.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


   MediaWiki is an open source wiki package, originally designed to
   implement Wikipedia. It is now used by several other projects of the
   non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and by many other sites. MediaWiki
   is written in PHP, and runs nicely in the typical LAMP stack. It is
   fairly easy to set up and most configuration can be done through a
   web browser.

   In the collaborative spirit of MediaWiki, this presentation will
   be a joint effort between Kevin McGregor, Gilbert Detillieux and
   Michael Doob. Gilbert will focus on installing and configuring
   MediaWiki, Kevin will focus on using and managing it, and Michael
   will show a novel way he's using MediaWiki on a netbook to store
   and present class notes, complete with mathematical notation.

   This month's RTFM topic, by Montana Quiring, will look at UNIX pipes.

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.
