LUGgers,

Tomorrow, I will be doing a talk on how your Linux machine gets from its
Power On Self Test all the way to your desktop. Topics covered include
MBR, (U)EFI, initial ram disks, init/systemd, and a few other
miscellaneous things.

Here's the details:

  Date: Thursday, 2017-02-09
  Time: 6pm
  Location: GC 297

Also, don't forget about the Linux Help directly before at 5pm in the
same room. This is a good time to bring a friend new to Linux and help
them get set up.

Lastly, idigmines day is Thursday as well. During this time, you can
make donations at http://c-fund.us/atc. If CS at Mines gets the most
donations *by number of people, not value*, then CS at Mines will get an
additional $25K bonus!

Since this money could directly benefit LUG, ACM, and ACM-W activities,
it would be great if all the LUGgers could go on and donate a dollar or so.

I look forward to seeing you at our meeting tomorrow!

Jack
