MUUG Presentation on Tuesday

I’ll be presenting at the local Unix user’s group on the topic of RSS, Greasemonkey, and some other tools I’ve found that make web and email more efficient (in terms of information per unit time). The announcement is below…

The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, January 10. The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

Efficient Web Browsing

In this presentation, Sean Walberg will demonstrate several tools that
are used to make better use of your time on the Internet. These tools
include an RSS aggregator, mailing list archiver,, and

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June. (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don’t have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
(between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
(in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm,
so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don’t be late, or you may
not get in. (But don’t come too early either, since security may not
be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.)

Limited parking is available for free on the street, or in a lot
across Ellice from IBM, for $1.00 for the evening. Indoor parking is
also available nearby, at Portage Place, for $3.00 for the evening.

Also note that MUUG maintains two mailing lists, called “muug-announce”
and “roundtable”. If you’re not already on these lists, we encourage you
to subscribe now:

The “muug-announce” list is used for monthly meeting announcements (such
as this one) as well as other important announcements of interest to MUUG

The “rountable” list is meant to be a forum for follow-ups to topics
discussed at the meetings, or for round-table-style discussion on other
topics that come up between meetings. Of course, for this to be effective,
we need to reach a certain critical mass. So, please subscribe, and stay
