Items to discuss :-

New HLUG website – my job hunting has got a whole load busier over last couple of weeks with a couple of interviews and some work for me, so as yet I have been unable to setup user logins for everyone who asked for them. I hope to complete this shortly before Weds so you’ll have something to start on .. Probably best to port some of the old contenmt over such as our previous events , but adding lots of new contnet too.

December Christmas meal will be held at the Ponte Vecchio Italian restaurant in Hereford on a date TBA. I will ring them this week and find out what availability they have.

October Meeting – Weds 23th – at the Courtyard – everyone welcome

Mon, 21/10/2013 – 11:38 — julianr

Hi Everyone Just a quick note to say our October meeting will be on Wednesday night at 7.30pm, usual place the Courtyard in Hereford on the mezzanine floor.

If you attended our Software Freedom Day event in September, please feel to come along on Wednesday.

The meeting will start at 7:30pm as usual. I’ve been out of the loop a bit recently, with family issues to deal with, so haven’t had any opportunity to get any agenda planned.

One thing we can look at is our next presentation night. Although we have the kind offer of a training room with the facilities we require, ie wifi at Hampton Court in between Leominster and Hereford, a couple of voices wondered said they may not be able to attend it as it was ‘a bit out of the way’. I personally think it would make a good venue but it needs some discussion, as to whether a free venue with no charges for hire at Hampton Court is preferable to a paying venue in a more centrally located place such as Hereford or Leominster, etc ..

Also there is the new HLUG website ? Didn’t get chance to look at this last time.  I might have some time to spend on this to get it set up anew. But what do we want to do with the site ? and how can we keep it up to date and fresh .. ?
