January 16th Meeting Notes

We started off the meeting with 8 present and late arrival took the count to 9.  We started off the meeting with just open conversation and first up was a conversation on cell phone battery life as one of our members had a new Pixel Phone. We also discussed some of the limitations of the new Android 9 operating system in connecting to PC and support for ext4 file systems that was missing.  He was going to try some other approaches to transferring files from ext4 linux formatted media.

October 17 Meeting Notes

Open meeting 10/17/2018

We started off the meeting 8 members present.  General conversation included the advances in Smart Phone Cameras, how good of pictures they take, the conventience, and advanced functions.  Smart Phones have replaced the point and shoot cameras that were so poplular a couple years ago even though they have a loyal user base, program features, along with advanced features not found in a Smart Phone.

Boise Linux Group July 18th Meeting report

We had 8 in attendance including our presenter for the evening.

I am going to take a difference approach to reporting the meetings, moving from my usual detailed report to a simple summary.  I am hoping this will drive attendance as I know some who just reply on my reports rather than attending the meeting.  Bottom line, if you want to know what is presented and discussed at the meeting, please join us.
