My first TWUUG meeting...

Not since my last TriLUG meeting, several years ago, had I attended any kind of LUG meeting.  Last night I decided to give my local UUG a go.

A friend of mind had told me about the Tidewater Unix User's Group (TWUUG) a couple of years ago but I put it in the back of my head and didn't think about it much.  Luckily for me I decided to go, last night, and see what the group is all about. I'm not sure what I was expecting but what I found was good group of geeks that had assembled to learn more from one another.  While an informal presentation was given on a program named hardinfo others people in the group were helping provide answers to questions that went far further into computer engineering than I had expected to be asked. But isn't that what it's all about?  You see something, want to know more about it, and then ask the question hoping the presenter will be able to answer the question.  But it doesn't have to be the presenter or any single person that has to be able to answer that question because we are a community and we help each other.

So on my calendar on the first Thursday of the month will be TWUUG.  If you are down in the Norfolk area during that time you should stop by and say hi!
