A reminder that the MUUG meeting will be this evening, both in person 
and online...

The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting IN PERSON, on Tuesday, April 4th, at 7:30pm.  Yes, that's a week 
early, i.e. the FIRST Tuesday of the month...

    Steam Decks and Steam Desks

    Join us this month for a foray into Linux gaming, presented
    by Chris Audet. We'll discuss Valve's Steam Deck, and similar
    handheld computers. We'll also cover some notable gaming Linux
    distros, such as Lakka, and ChimeraOS.

    RTFM: termdown - turn your terminal into a countdown timer
    (or stopwatch)!

    For this month's RTFM, Brad Vokey will give us a quick
    demonstration of some of the features of termdown, a python
    countdown timer for the terminal which he has used in the
    past to count down the MUUG virtual meeting breaks.

    Where to find the Meeting:
    Fortress Software Inc., 350 Keewatin St -- Unit #2

    We have a new in-person meeting location now! Brad Vokey has
    graciously let us use his work office for our next in-person
    meeting. The meeting room will be open by 7:00 pm, with the actual
    meeting starting at 7:30 pm. If driving, enter the lot using the
    most north east entrance and drive around to the south west corner
    of the building (see route in map detail on poster linked below).
    You can use any of the free, amble, and safe parking spots that
    say "reserved" in front of units #1 through #4 before entering
    unit #2. Bus stops #30814 and #30880 (route 77) are only 150
    meters away. The last bus leaves for Polo Park at 10:15 pm and for
    Garden City at 10:31 pm. Logan Ave. bus routes #19, #26, and #27
    are a 600 meter (8 minute) walk to the south.

    For those unable or preferring not to attend in person, the
    meeting will also be available online, using BBB as usual. Stay
    tuned to our muug.ca home page for the official URL, which
    will be made available about a half hour before the meeting
    starts. (Reload the page if you don't see the link, or if there
    are issues with connecting.)

    *Date Change*

    Please note the change in meeting date for this month, and for the
    rest of the current year (at least until the July/August break).
    We are now meeting on the first Tuesday of each month.

The group now holds its meetings at 7:30pm on the *first* 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.
