This is the first page of the current Cincinnati Linux User Group (CLUG) website. I am parsing the last backup of the old site to restore as much as I can.

This month’s meeting will be a talk about our website!

Think about what you want it to look like, what it should contain, what sort of content would make you return again and again.

Thank you and hope to see you at the meeting!

Steve Jones

PS, I told a couple people that this meeting would be about something else, sorry about that!
