April 2010 is a slow month. Only one meeting planned for the 21st, at the Sailor's Bar in Herttoniemi.

Let's learn C! First we will write a mini DNS server. We got started on Jan 30th, 2007, by writing a small app which listens for DNS packets and prints them out. The code is available in the files directory. GNU license, of course.

PLUG appearance on October 25th, 2005, on the Radio Neukkula podcast.

PLUG had a joint-meeting with Porvoo Radio Amateurs on August 24th, 2005. Some pictures of the meet can be found here.

We meet every Tuesday, 6PM - 8PM. We discuss alternately GNU/Linux and gadgets. See this month's schedule on the left (the actual meeting agenda depends on the members present). Here are some topics:

  • Linux installation
  • Linux and Windows/Apple used together
  • Shell scripts

We meet at Papinkatu 19, at the WSOY building next to Porvoo City Library. Entrance is through the door which says "Jäntin Taidekokoelma." If you have problems, please call Troy at 040-570-9900.

The PLUG has a mailing list. To join, please visit the lists page. Please also visit the contact page, and add yourself as a member, so you can get your voice heard.

PLUG's goal is popularizing the use of GNU/Linux. If you think you could be of help, or if you would like to join, please let us know. Participation is gratis (whereas GNU/Linux is free [as in freedom]). Participants include novices as well as experienced linux users.

We started PLUG's Linux From Scratch project on May 07, 2003.

Roope created several logos for PLUG. We selected one for a PLUG t-shirt and now you can see proud PLUGGERS walking around Porvoo with these new shirts on. Snow? We don't care about snow! We are PLUGGERS!
