Regular 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:


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, identify, mogrify, composite, compare, stream, display, animate, import, or "conjure" your images. Jim McQuillan and Tony Bemus will talk about how they use Imagemagick to do their heavy-duty image processing. You'll never look at your image processing the same way again.


Many of the early computer games were designed to emulate board games. Games like Chess, Go, and Reversi are popular board games that have computer opponents. But what about the latest renaissance in board gaming? What's the best way to play games like Ascension, Through the Ages, Dominant Species, and more? The VASSAL Engine is not only an open source way to play board games locally or online, but it's also a way to port games to be played on the computer. Craig Maloney will give a brief introduction to this innovative and fun engine for board gaming, and will introduce some games that you can have fun playing using VASSAL. 

Plus we'll have our usual features (Jobs Looking For People, People Looking for Jobs, news and events), and much much more. Hope to see you there!
