Hey,
I agree that yesterday's meeting was a success. It was cool to see
some new faces, as well as the folks I remembered, and get to take in
the new format.

After Richard suggested that we look into incorporating a bit of basic
command line stuff into the October presentations, I went and found
copies of the two attached PFDs. They're free to share, and I found
them to be useful when getting confident with different CLI
operations. The 'Linux Command Line' book might be particularly useful
to someone thinking about preparing a brief, systematic, presentation.

I was thinking that it might also be cool to reserve 5 minutes each
meeting for someone to share a favourite command line trick (a la
UUPC's 'Command Line Love' segment). IDK.

Thanks,
Robbie
