  • Group members attended the Brown Bag lecture on Robotics at the Cochise College downtown campus on 01 November and the free lecture on Viterbi Algorithum and Trellis Trace Back at the UA South Public Meeting Room in Groth Hall on 02 November. The Robotics lecture featured 6 students (sixth and seventh grade) from Col Smith Middle School on Fort Huachuca who were able to assemble and program a bot to do some simple commands in 10 minutes.
  • There was an excellent article on the CLUG published in the Sierra Vista Herald/Review last Tuesday. We should get some great publicity out of it.
  • We are scheduled to sign up for dates for the conference room in the public library on 17 November at 1145. We will ask for the 4th Saturday of each month again from 1300-1545.
  • Check out the new countdown clock on the web site Home page thanks to David Garcia. It will announce the next event/meeting/get together of the group if Rex Bouwense can figure out to update it.
  • We are still working on Group T-shirts. If we can get enough people who will commit to getting one, the cost should be around $15 per.
  • Roger and Louise Lance indicated that there are a number of people who live in Sunsites that could benefit from a Ubuntu installation. They will be in contact with the details and we may schedule a road trip to do an installfest there or as a minimum a presentation on Linux.


  • Installed Linux Mint (Cinnamon) on a guest’s computer
  • Updated Ubuntu 14.04 on a guest’s computer
  • Did a release upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 16.04 on a guest’s computer
