Visiting Chattanooga over the weekend - Father's Day Brew and Blues - and an ATL RHUG next week

So two things.


I'll be in Chattanooga this weekend with the family. I'm not sure how 
much time I'll have, but if the stars align, and folks are near 
downtown, I'd love to coordinate a meal, coffee, or a beer with folks. 
I'm leaving this afternoon, and plan to be in Chattanooga this evening 
through Sunday. I'm staying downtown, Southside, as I was hoping to be 
within walking distance of Finley stadium. We have transportation, so I 
can drive into the downtown area pretty easily.


We're resurrecting the Atlanta RHUG next weekend for an in-person event 
- the 1st since the pandemic hit in 2020.

Here's the details. You can also attend virtually if you're not willing 
to drive down - but you should as Buckhead is amazing, and if you stay 
near me (Kennesaw), there's plenty of breweries to keep you busy.

Friday, June 24th, we have a RHUG at the Atlanta Office in Buckhead.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ cool! I promised you a tasty burger... or maybe some tasty chicken or pizza! there's Champy's on MLK or there's Naked River Brewery near Finely. I've only been there one time, it was purty good from what I remember or... Mellow Mushroom, by the Aquarium just throwing some stuff out there.... it would be nice to meet you in person... after we've been on Chugalug for 20 years. ps: What year did Chugalug start??? 1] L)

=============================================================== From: Tia Lobo ------------------------------------------------------ 1994 was also when CHIA started. CHUGALUG might have been a little bit later. It was more an opposition to CALUG that was focused on "Installfests". CHUGALUG focused more on people who actually used Linux for work. -Erica -=--=---=----=----=---=--=-=--=---=----=---=--=-=- Erica Wolf (she/her)

=============================================================== From: flushy@flushy.net ------------------------------------------------------ NRB sounds cool. I have not been there yet. Sometime Saturday? Maybe for lunch? We have MM here, too. It's consistently good. It's not amazing, but it's consistent. Not a bad spot to go when traveling and you don't know the local cuisine. So, I'm thinking NBR for Saturday lunch-ish? --b

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ Would be fun to dig up the archives and see what were some of the earliest topics discussed on Chugalug mailing list back then. I'm guessing there had to be at least one My 486dx4 is faster than your Pentium 66! thread

I think arrakis was a 386/25, and caladan was a 486DX2/66? Maybe? arrakis had maybe 8MB of RAM, maybe it was just 4, and was our nameserver. Although one day Mike and I got Emacs running under 1 bit X on it (with lots of swapping) because we were trying to see what it could do, caladan was the web server, NNTP host, and general shell machine. I think shortly before I left the NNTP got moved to its own machine. I don't remember how much RAM it had, but I'm guessing 16MB, probably about half a gig, maybe even a gigabyte of disk. I remember a few years later I sent Mike something like a P90 to plug into the network, and it had a snazzy SCSI controller but I couldn't get the standard boot loader to recognize the Linux partition on it, so I remember something like putting the kernel on an MS-DOS partition, booting DOS which loaded a driver for the SCSI board off a floppy, and then using loadlin.exe to get the kernel in play. Remotely upgrading that was always terrifying. But the early days of Chugalug would have also been early web programming. I know even when I was back in Petaluma I wrote CGI apps in C, and I likely released Newwwsboy (which Hotwired used, briefly), in Perl, in February of '98. So I'm sure we were talking about things like that, or our various early CMS frameworks...

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ I'm immune to it, so no worries. ;) I'm here. Blue t-shirt with smashed printer and red stapler on front fine now

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ The first chugalug meeting at Naked River Brewery went well. Very tasty BBQ was had. Conversations meandered from Apple IIe, C=3D64, Ataris, to corporate perform= ance and raises, to folks not leaving bad jobs but bad management. We finished with a little jostling around historical events and what we were= n=E2=80=99t taught in schools. Ed is a scholar and a gentleman. I really enjoyed the company and conversations. Also, Juneteenth is tomorrow, so remember and celebrate ! --b rote: ine now but don=E2=80=99t want to risk spreading this to anyone.=20 =20 =20

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ It was nice to finally meet you after knowing you for 20 years! I enjoyed the conversation and meeting your family. I hope yall have a great visit. Stay safe and hydrated :) fine now e r s
