Please join us December 14, 2006 at Red Hat for our annual Holiday Social/Potluck. Take this time to catch up with TriLUG friends, play a few rounds of BZ Flag, and generally have a good time. This event is a potluck, so bring desserts, hot food, wings, whatever to share with friends.

We'll also be collecting non-perishable foods to benefit the Raleigh Rescue Mission so bring some canned, dry, and other goods, but let's leave the Ramen at home this year. :-)

The September Triangle Linux Users Group meeting will be held on September 14 at RedHat HQ map and directions

In a traditional office setting, there are relatively high powered Intel based PC's spread around at every desk. Each with several gigabytes of hard disk space. Users store their own data on the local hard drives and backups are rarely (if ever) performed.

Does it really make sense to have a full computer at each desk?

The Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) http://www.ltsp.org/ provides asimple way to utilize low cost workstations as either graphical or character based terminals on a GNU/Linux server.

Jason Tower will present and demonstrate LTSP, and how to put those old low-powered machines to use.
