For those of you that were unable to attend the 05 December Cochise Linux User Group meeting, here are the minutes of the meeting.

The sixth meeting of the Cochise Linux User Group was held at the Sierra Vista public library conference room from 1400-1545. Nine people attended the meeting ( two new people). Paul Bernard introduced the new web site and the its sub-sections. Please check it out. It was created and is maintained by Jake Strechek and Paul.

Rex Bouwense announced the results of the library lottery for selection of meeting dates in the conference room for the next calendar year. We managed to reserve the 4th Saturday of each month (with the exception of 24 December 2016) for our Saturday meetings from 1400-1545. Our Wednesday meetings at the University will revert back to the 2d Wednesday of each month starting in January.

Down the Road:
