September 9th, 2014 MUG Meeting

We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library. Topics for the September 9th, 2014 meeting include: Imagemagick Ever needed to crop, resize, color-correct, or convert an image from one format to another? That’s a simple operation for something like The GIMP. But What about 10 images? 50 images? 5,000 images? That’s a lot of photos. Wouldn’t it be nice to script that up somehow? Imagemagick is a set of utilities to convert, … Read More »

August 12th, 2014 MUG Meeting

We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library. Topics for the August 12th, 2014 meeting include: Sublime Text Few topics spark more heated debate for developers than the choice of editor.

Color me cranky

Last night I working on the computer trying to get caught up with a few projects. Around 7pm the UPS started chirping, and then suddenly the power went out.

Topics this month include: The Go Programming Language You might have heard about Go the programming language as the laguage developed at Google, but probably haven’t looked much further than Wikipedia for what the Go Language is all about. You might not have known that it was initially developed at Google by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike and Ken Thompson, is based loosely on C … Read More »

And… back on Twitter

Put myself back on Twitter after about a month’s worth of absence. Why the change of heart? Blame Douglas Whitfield of the Music Manumit Podcast who apparently thinks that a private account that doesn’t follow anyone, with a location set to “Deactivated” is a perfect avenue to engage in conversation. Plus I missed some of… Read more: And… back on Twitter Read More »
