Hi All,

There will be a regular 4th Sunday of the month meeting this Sunday at 12pm at Bobby G's.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to make this meeting, as I am in LA at SCALE.  There should still be a lively meeting; so feel free to come by and talk some Linux.  

See you all in 2 weeks,

Jack

I plan to bring some Debian CDs:

Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 "Squeeze" CDs.
That's the latest "stable"(/production) Debian release,
Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" released 2011-02-06

The CDs I have are i386 and amd64:
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 "Squeeze" - Official i386 CD Binary-1
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 "Squeeze" - Official amd64 CD Binary-1

Oh, ... Jack - I've still got business card holder and some CDs from
the meeting before last - I missed last meeting - guess I'll get 'em
back to you at first meeting in March.

So, ... got meeting updates? :-)
http://www.berkeleylug.com/?page_id=67

BUUG updates theirs by crontab job and perl script,
BALUG by hand - but also puts the dates on the web page well into the
future.

I intend to bring some CDs to the
2011-03-27 Berkeley Linux Users Group meeting.
Currently the selection looks about like:

I wonder if any of you guys have a lap top to donate to a senior citizen
whose Life would be really transformed by such a gift. At this time Joan
goes to this and that friends to have email and the most marginal things
including ordering on netflicks. There are a few people in my building
who live on a below the poverty level fixed income whose world would
expand and explode with a lap top or computer. My heightened interest
in serving this group happened when I set up internet provider ATT for a
friend who is 85 and new to the internet. Now almost 2 years later she
has expanded her use and interests which exercises her brain and
supports her over all health both mental and physical. I have heard that
the 'grandmother' generation is taking off in internet use. I wonder if
we as a LUG group can help those who are unable to purchase their own
hardware.
My life has been expanded since I joined this LUG. I really delight in
being a beginner in Linux.
With respect and gratitude, ilsa

Hmmmm, perhaps someone on the list knows about such tool or interface.

Also, with Date::Calc the code gets quite a bit simpler and smaller.
This version doesn't do the time calculation bits (that could be
added), but is otherwise quite a bit more simple and compact:
$ ./upcoming_meetings | head -n 6
2011-04-24
2011-05-08
2011-05-22
2011-06-12
2011-06-26
2011-07-10
$ expand -t 4 < upcoming_meetings
#!/usr/bin/perl
$^W=1;
use strict;

# vi(1) :se tabstop=4

# 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from today going forward,
# ISO YYYY-MM-DD output, YYYY not to exceed 9999

use Date::Calc qw(
Today
Nth_Weekday_of_Month_Year
)
;

my ($year,$month,$day) = Today();

my $day2=(Nth_Weekday_of_Month_Year($year,$month,7,2))[2];
printf(
"%04d-%02d-%02d\n",
($year,$month,$day2)
) if $day2 >= $day;
$day2=(Nth_Weekday_of_Month_Year($year,$month,7,4))[2];
printf(
"%04d-%02d-%02d\n",
($year,$month,$day2)
) if $day2 >= $day;
undef $day2;

while(1){
++$month;
if($month>12){
$month=1;
exit(0) if ++$year > 9999;
};
printf(
"%04d-%02d-%02d\n",
(Nth_Weekday_of_Month_Year($year,$month,7,2))
);
printf(
"%04d-%02d-%02d\n",
(Nth_Weekday_of_Month_Year($year,$month,7,4))
);
};

Perl, shell, ... bit of updates ...
I figure this covers some upcoming meeting dates, ... oh, and that we'll skip 2016-12-25, as it conflicts with some big holiday thing, and Bobby G's Pizzeria will probably be closed that day anyway).

You might want to cross-check those against
http://linuxmafia.com/bale/holidays.html , to spot any other conflicts
that you choose to care about.

2016-02-14 Valentine's Day
2016-03-13 DST begins (2nd Sun Mar) -- not a holiday but worth noting
2016-03-27 Easter Sunday (western Christians)
2016-06-12 Shavuot first evening
2016-09-11 Eid al Adha
2016-10-09 Leif Ericson Day (though he was a late-comer, too)
2016-10-23 Sukkot, last day (you can take down those booths)
2016-11-13 Sadie Hawkins Day
2016-11-27 Advent (not juse a text adventure game, to some folks)

Nota bene: Distinguing the events cited above with serious intent from
those with extremely unserious intent is left as an exercise for the reader.

Nota bene, quoque: Religious authenticity of holidays on lunar
calendars not guaranteed, but then you wouldn't be heeding me, anyway.
