*A reminder that this meeting is next Tuesday.* (Hope you didn't show up 
last night!)

The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, February 21.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

    Linux LVM

    One of the most important new developments in the Linux 2.6
    kernel was the Logical Volume Manager, version 2 (or LVM 2).
    Logical volume management is a widely-used technique for
    deploying logical rather than physical storage. With LVM,
    "logical" partitions can span across physical hard drives and
    can be resized (unlike traditional ext3 "raw" partitions).
    Kevin McGregor will summarize the basic principles behind the
    LVM and provide examples of basic operations which can be
    performed with it.

    February's RTFM will feature the traceroute(1) command,
    presented by our president, Katherine Scrupa.

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.
