I was reading through Stuff and came across this article about the
disbanding of the PCUG. The article blames the rise of the internet for
the fall in membership numbers of user groups and computer clubs.
(between the lines) You no longer need to go to a club to find people to
help with issues or to swap stories, etc with. This is now done in
various fora online.
Interesting reading methinks. Any comments?
I still remember the days of my Unix admin training (on IBM's AIX) and
the editor of choice was "vi". Though vim ("vi improved") is
definitely easier to use than vi, its two modes (command and insert)
still throw off newbies. But after you get to know vim a bit better
(or its graphical counterpart gvim), there is a lot more to it than
just editing the odd text file once in a while.
The following ars article is quite a good read:
Being a programmer, I really enjoy the "Tag List plugin" also
mentioned in the article. Makes browsing of source code easy.
If you ever have to work with LaTeX documents, then "VIM-LaTeX" will
be your friend (unless you use kile or lyx):

The Waikato Linux Users Group have a meeting in one week from today:
JohnBillings, BruceKingsbury and ChrisOhalloran will talk about the past, present and future of the WlugBladeServer, 'hoiho'. The server hosts this wiki, as well as some other services you possibly didn't know about.
* Chris will talk about our membership database and talk about how you can get a shell account, and why you would even want that.
* Bruce will demonstrate some of the remote management features (integrated Lights Out or iLO) using WLUG's identical spare server 'kororaa', which was donated to us a year or two ago by Canterbury DHB.
* John will talk about some of the history, current status and future maintenance required on the server.
If you care about the WLUG server infrastructure, are, or would like to be one of the WlugSysadmins, or just interested in how the server is configured and what services are available, you should attend this meeting.
SOLVED,,,, many thanks

I have just burned some c/d's with Serpentine for a friend
from some itunes he owns. More than half are correctly
titled but the rest are not. I have re-named a lot of the
tracks from e.g.
<01 track 01.M4A> to <songname .M4A> However when I open the
files in any media player or burner it reverts to its
initial filename or nearest whole number e.g. <unknown track
1 .ogg> or <track 1 .wav> is there some way I can force a
rename that will remain?
Hi, guys Im looking at putting a personal web page online, in the next few
months. I have chosen the domain name I am after and plan to purchase this
soon. I would perfer to use the .net suffix, but a .co.nz could be used as a
fallback option. Once the website is in a state worth uploading I will go

wordpress support, and preference for freedom to run personal python scripts
are the only real requirments) . Any one got recommendations on a company to

that I can get to work . Thanks to those people who replied to my
