Subject: [lug] September 10, 1998 Meeting Summary

Attendance:  I counted 40 people

  I also found it interesting that Steven Hunyady, an Instrumentation
  Engineer from Langmuir Laboratory - New Mexico Institute of Mining &
  Technology, drove up from Socorro , New Mexico to attend our meeting.
  If I understood him correctly, he said that his laboratory has converted
  almost exclusively to Linux.  Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to
  talk more about this with him!

Featured presentation:

   Dr. Judah Levine from the NIST Time and Frequency Division gave this
   months presentation.  He discussed some of the fundamental problems of
   time synchonization, the methods that computer systems use for time
   keeping, and the methods used for computer time synchronization over
   the internet.

   Some sites of general interest on this topic are:


Other items of interest:  

   - The NCLUG Install fest scheduled for September 13 in Fort Collins
   - Next months presentation - Lynn Danielson, Samba networking demo

Door Prize Drawing:  Linux in a Nutshell book from O'Reilly Publishing

We wrapped up the evening as usual with a group question and answer
session before breaking up to allow everyone to socialize.
