It was 90 degrees, wonderfully humid, and partly sunny tonight. To our surprise, 14 people attended the monthly General Assistance (& Install) Meeting. Chair John Bridleman launched into the abbreviated introduction and made quick conclusion. Snacks where abundant, the basement WAP was working, The were no install assistance requests this month. Is it so easy now that nobody needs help with installs? Well, that is great… KLUG is ready if anyone does want help.
While many Linux related discussions were spawning around the room, a desktop box with a long forgotten BIOS password was cleared employing the motherboard jumper technique. Several solutions were offered by the group. Access to the BIOS was needed to get the box to boot off the DVD/CD for an install at a latter date.
Brock and Leola got help from Dirk, Bob, and Andrew. They had their 64-bit Compaq (HP) laptop their for some assistance. Leola wanted printing help and found out how she could get the output she wanted. The printing of a #10 envelope was an accomplishment. Leola also had lessons in burning a CD-ROM. She took root to avoid problems.
