Report on September meeting

October 11th, 2016

It was good – the ‘usual suspects’.
Darren bought along his USB headset – but with a slackware laptop that
it works on, as the machine (with the same slackware version) that it
does not work on is too large to lug along. Suggestions of comparing
dmesg output when switching audio sources etc. was suggested – and
also probably just generally blame pulse for audio issues – but maybe
that is a little unfair 😉
Andy and I chatted about docker stuff, and Andy will be looking at
puppet as well.
We discussed how some pcie wifi cards don’t work in some laptops –
istr it is because some ‘pcie’ slots are not actually full pcie, and
are something else (same format) that only supports wifi – can’t
remember the name of that slot/’standard’ off the top of my head

Oh, and as on the list – we ‘fixed’ Andys wylug email on his Android
gmail app by logging in to the list service and unsetting ‘digest’

One thing we need to discuss – Andy won’t be able to make Mondays for
the next year! We discussed what would be the best other day for the
three of us present, and settled on that being a Thursday. So, we need
to discuss the possibility of moving the monthly meet from Mondays to
Thursdays. Input and opinions welcome here…
We did note that a non-Monday would also avoid all the bank holiday
frustrations 🙂
