Tom is happy to do a presentation on the lightweight Linux distros Crux and Tinycore Linux.
Virtualisation discussed as a meeting topic for later in the year.
Ronnie will look at conducting a presentation on live coding in November.
Lightening talks discussed as an alternative format (i.e. cover two (or more) topics for 10-15 minutes each in one evening. Have each topic presentation followed by a Q & A session). Committee discussed ideas for advertising club to prospective members via the University. Flyers may not be the most effective means, due to the overabundence of flyer adverts directed at students.
