Virtual - via Jitsi
This month is the annual scripting talk/open discussion. We have at least three items lined up and are hoping for some scripting items from the general membership, so feel free to volunteer a pet script or a scripting question.
Scripting is a pretty open topic, not just limited to shells, but any scripting language is fair game. Maybe there will be something new that you have not seen or considered before.
Call for participation:
If anyone is interested in doing a short ~5 minute talk on some scripting
aspect, feel free to let the secretary (

The meeting URL will now be a fixed URL, https://six.linux-ottawa.org and should be up for connection by 18:30 on meeting nights and will vanish shortly after the meeting has concluded. You will be joining as anonymous guests, so you will not have a username or password. If it asks if you are the host for a username and password, it has not been started yet.
Video and audio will be disabled when you join. In order to make sure the experience is a reasonable one for all involved, the presenter will share their screen-window-whatever they are comfortable with and you will see it quite clearly. Rather than unmute, pressing your space bar is supposed to unmute your microphone while pressed, so you can try that to ask questions. There is also the chat window, which no longer appears to obscure the rest of the session (maybe on small monitors?) Feel free to post questions and as opportunity presents itself and the presenter notices, they will get answered. After the presentation is completed, feel free to unmute and have a normal voice/video Q&A.
