Upcoming Meetings


May 4th - Google Cardboard Viewer demo; CD Ripping & Scanning Documents with Linux - Greg will demo a Cardboard Google Viewer. What is that?  If you can't afford an Oculus, or other expensive VR device maybe this will give you the 3D Virtual Reality experience you have been missing.  And if you think moving to Linux will mean leaving behind your ability to rip your favorite CDs to you collection, or scan bills to digital and avoid the clutter, well, see here. You can do all that with Linux too.
