Plymouth Lug meet write up Sept 2016

The September DCLUG Plymouth meeting was held at Hush Coffee. For a
number of people, it was their first LUG meeting, and everyone seemed
to have a nice time. We had a demo of
the Pocket CHIP,
MoonReader, libreboot, i3wm,
Debian/KDE,
and kubuntu. We talked about
Linux-related podasts (Bad
Voltage
, GNU World Order,
Linux
Luddites
, Linux
Voice
). We had an update on the Open Computing project at Plymouth
University, and we talked about some of the local events that had
happened recently,
including Code Club at
the civic library, Torbay
Tech Jam
and
the MiniMaker Faire at
Bristol
. We also talked about open computing and open science –
includuing R and data publication. There was also interest in retro gaming on Linux,
including the text adventures Lost
Pig
and
Jigsaw, and the
‘Get
Lamp’
documentary. Other retro computing topics
included: pico-8
and ZZT,
plus various emulation platforms
(Scumm, Doom, Playstation
1
