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 »

LXC (LinuX Containers) is an operating system-level virtualization solution that allows for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a single control host. It allows for flexible … Read More »
