The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting online, on Tuesday, September 8th, at 7:30pm:

    AWS Quickstart

    For the new user, the multitude of AWS services and configurations
    can be daunting. Wyatt Zacharias will show how to start an AWS
    account from scratch, including how to properly set up your user
    credentials, and how to get a VM up and running for the first

    RTFM: fd(1) - a simple, fast, user-friendly alternative to find(1)

    Most Linux users are all too familiar with the find command and
    its frustrating syntax. This month, Brad Vokey will show us an
    alternative to the find command, called fd.

    Some of the features of fd: convenient syntax: fd PATTERN instead
    of find -iname '*PATTERN*', colourized terminal output, it's
    fast!, uses smart case by default, ignores hidden directories and
    files by default, ignores patterns from your .gitignore by
    default, uses proper PCRE, and the command name is 50% shorter
    than find. :-)

    Door Prizes

    On top of the usual assortment of e-books on offer this month,
    we'll have a hard copy of the O'Reilly book "Unicode Explained"
    as a door prize. The book will be available for pick-up, drop-off,
    or snail-mailing.
