BASE: Secure Linux to Linux Shares

by Stan Reichardt

Mostly about using sshfs to securely share directories of files between Linux machines, instead of SAMBA. Demonstration will show both Command Line Interface (CLI) and Graphical User Interface (GUI) useage.

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

MAIN: Grand Unified (Color) Theory

by Scott Granneman and Jans Carton

The MAIN presentation is Grand Unified (Color) Theory: Meet Roy G. Biv

Every second we are conscious, our eyes send color signals to our brains for processing, but we are rarely conscious of that process. How do we actually perceive color in our environments, on our monitors, in printed materials, and in films? What does it really mean to be color blind? How has color been presented in art? What's the difference between RGB and CMY? And why do our brains play cognitive and physiological tricks on us when it comes to understanding color, motion, perspective and other optical illusions? All these questions and many more will be covered in our upcoming talk by Scott Granneman and Jans Carton.

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.
