Our Linux & BSDiscussion meets every Wednesday from 6 PM to 8 PM in the Turing classroom. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Turing Alan Turing]] It is an informal meeting sponsored by the San Francisco Linux User's Group [http://www.sf-lug.org SF-LUG.ORG] and is wide open to any ideas relating to using the various [http://www.gnu.org GNU]/[http://www.kernel.org Linux]-based and [ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/src/share/misc/bsd-family-tree BSD]-based operating systems].
