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

   The Wireless Neighbourhood

   Over three years ago, neighbours and MUUG members Kevin McGregor and
   Kelly Leveille thought they had some cool ideas for data sharing
   that would work well via a direct link between their homes. They had
   briefly experimented with using their broadband Internet connection,
   but they were disappointed by the asymmetric connection speeds.

   This month,  Kelly  and  Kevin will discuss the hardware, firmware,
   topology,  trials and tribulations, configuration and eventual
   successful implementation of their private, wireless-connected
   network. With pictures, and demo-free!

   Plus, this month's meeting is the MUUG annual general meeting, which
   will include the election of the MUUG board of directors for the
   2010-2011 year. You must be a MUUG member in good standing, and be
   present at the meeting, in order to vote.

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.
