    BASE: SimpleScreenRecorder

    by Stan Reichardt

    Capturing Your Linux Workstation Screens

    This Linux program was created to record video and sound of programs and games. The orginal goal was to create a program that was really simple to use. After adding more and more features the result was a pretty powerful program. It remains simple because it has a straightforward user interface.

    This session might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.

    MAIN: The World of Browsers

    by Scott Granneman

    Consider that 66% of all people on the Web use Chrome. 17% use Safari. Just 4% use Firefox, 3% use Edge, and only 1.3% use Internet Explorer (that browser deserves it, at least!). But; there is a whole wide world of web browsers out there that are excellent and offer cool features that the major browsers may never include. In this talk Scott is going to provide you with some neat tips and tricks for the widely-used browsers, but Scott also is going to go deep on some browsers that are not as well known; but, definitely deserve a spot on your computers and mobile devices.

    SLUUG Sponsored meetings in the STL Metro Area

    Monthly Meetings

    We open the room for the general meeting about 6:00 PM.

    Then we start at 6:30 PM with our BASE introductory level session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, smoke and mirrors, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.

    Sometime after 7:00 PM we attempt a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.

    Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),

    All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.
