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

   Mini-Topic Trio

   Linux allows you to do some pretty cool stuff with digital
   cameras. Trevor Cordes will demonstrate how to use Linux to
   control a Canon SLR, and do some neat post-processing tricks
   such as exposure bracketing (AEB).

   After 30 years, the writing is on the wall for the venerable
   MBR (Master Boot Record). Now that drives larger than 2 TB are
   commonly available, something else will have to replace it.
   That something is heir-apparent GPT (GUID Partition Table).
   Kevin McGregor will discuss the history of disk partitioning,
   and how to make use of disks larger than 2 TB under Linux.

   The March RTFM will feature Gilbert Detillieux, talking about
   the rpm(8) and yum(8) commands, used for package management in
   Red Hat and similar Linux distributions.

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 *NEW* meeting location: Room 1L08, Lockhart Hall,
   University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave. between Spence St.
   and Balmoral St.

   Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
   on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
   or ask a security guard.
