-====== Agenda Changes ====== 
-//  SUMMARY: This is where we consider any additions, deletions, sequence, or other changes to sequence of items in the prepared agenda. ​ // 
-<​code>​ 
-  * HISTORY: ​ 
-  * We consider changes prior to all reviews, planning and OLD BUSINESS items by jumping ahead, then back, without altering agenda layout. 
-  * We will jump to old items then back to usual sequence. 
-  * We will jump to *New Business* section, create new item, consider, then jump back to usual sequence. 
-  * By not altering agenda layout, it is easier to build next month'​s agenda. ​ Moving a previous item out of sequence made editing difficult. 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-  * NEW BUSINESS: Any new business? 
-  * Are there any additions, deletions, sequence, or other changes to sequence of items in the prepared agenda?

-====== Meeting Schedule ====== 
-// SUMMARY * We try to track prospects to give presentations at our SLUUG General (SLUUG) meeting and LINUX (STLLUG) meetings.// 
-    * We try to segregate topic types as either **BASE, MAIN or LINUX,** with BASE and MAIN given at the General meeting (SLUUG) . 
-    * **BASE** ​ topics should be oriented toward simpler Personal Computing. Usually given as General meeting (SLUUG). Short is good. 
-    * **MAIN** ​ topics should be oriented more toward advanced or Professional Computing. Usually given at General meeting (SLUUG). 
-    * **LINUX** topics could be either at the General meeting or at the St. Louis Linux Users Group (STLLUG) meetings. 
-    * We always want to have alternative topics on hand if primary speaker doesn'​t show. 
-    * Gary will continue to explore different computer manufacturers (ex: Cray) who might be able to do presentation "Where are they now?"

-      * **Note: Need documentation on this process!**  ​ 
-      * Mike Knight fixed o/a 6 October per email  
-      * Chuck did stuff.  ​ 
-      * Wiki documentation is so old as to becoming confusing and hard for Lee to document.

-      * Stan: No action taken to fix broken SLUUG Members Page pointed out by Mike Knight. 
-        * Stan: There is no link to the Members Page. 
-        * Lee: Why not rename the Members Page so any bookmarks to it are broken. 
-        * Gary mentioned article about CloudFlare and how to be sure our pages get onto the WayBack machine. Requires further investigation. 
-  * 2020-11-02 
-      * Consider CloudFlare DNS so we would start showing up in the WayBack machine. 
-      * They likely are data mining any and all traffic. 
-      * Past members pages were being looked for. 
-      * November 2020 - *automated* LetsEncrypt free SSL certificates for websites on BOCK. 
-  * 2020-11-30 (for December) ​

-===== Uploading Presentations ===== 
-//  SUMMARY: We have recorded many of our past meetings and made them available on the Internet.// 
-  * *Minutes narratives prior to July 2020 Steercom have been removed.* ​ 
-  * 2020-06-29 for July 
-    * Lee added new 50G partition on Bock at /srv/media/ 
-    * Don will contact Steve Pidgeon 
-  * 2020-08-03 
-  * 2020-08-31 for September 
-    * Stan: I'm behind. (Stan recorded August LUG meeting; needs to upload) 
-  * 2020-10-05 
-    * Don will contact Steve Pidgeon 
-    * Unknown 
-  * 2020-11-02 
-    * Don has not contact Steve Pidgeon 
-    * Stan pointed to https://​www.sluug.org/​steercom/​ page. 
-    * Lee wonders if we need to keep recording of STEERCOM for a long time.  Space is being burnt fast. 
-  * 2020-11-30 (for December) ​ 
-      * Nothing to say. 
-  * 2021-01-04 
-  * 2021-02-01 
-      * The January ZOOM recordings were linked just today. 
-  * 2021-03-01 
-      * Available Feruary ZOOM and JITSI recordings were uploaded and linked to Presentations Archives page. 
-      * QUESTION: Should existing presentation files be gradually moved to /srv/MEDIA partition? 
-        * ANSWER: Per Lee, good idea! 
-        * PLAN: Stan R will start moving currently uploaded existing presentations and modify HTML links as appropriate. 
-        * PLAN: Stan R has found additional presentations that are also to be uploaded and linked. 
-      * GOAL: Determine how significant are our meeting recordings to our membership, and how significant might expansion eventually task BOCK. 
-        * Stan R used to use Webalizer hitreport page;but, it has been so very long that he has forgotten exactly how to use it. 
-        * Stan R hopes to use Webalizer to measure downloads by members that are viewing the uploaded presentations. 
-        * Recent (on Sunday) initiation of hitreport produced the Webalizer https://​www.sluug.org/​hitreport/​ page that seems quite limited. 
-        * QUESTIONS: Is Webalizer constantly capturing data so that we can use it?  If not, could it be reconfigured?​ 
-        * Would be nice to know; but, we don't have staffing to explore expanding Webalizer nor YouTube at this time. 
-  * 2021-04-05 ​ 
-        * Stan R pay trippled, even though has not checked into Webalizer capture of data. Not enough time. 
-        * We will have to revisit Webalizer hitreport page.  Let Mikey do it (or some other minion).

-===== Handouts ===== 
-//  SUMMARY: We have informational handout PDFs available [[http://​www.sluug.org/​resources/​handouts/​]]. // 
-  * HISTORY: The PDFs are generated using LibreOffice. The originating files are stored along with generated PDFs. 
-    * Lee ordered printer parts that should correct krinkle problem. 
-    * Stan R has been modifying a Linux Presentation Day from 2015 found on the Internet. ​ It has excellent content. 
-      * Difficult to modify, as it is extremely graphically intense. ​ Built and modified with the Scribus application. 
-      * Likely too complex to print, may wind up splitting content to make a slide show presentation. 
-  * *Minutes narratives prior to July 2020 Steercom have been removed.* ​ 
-  * 2020-06-29 for July 
-    * Nothing being worked on this month. 
-  * 2020-08-03 
-  * 2020-08-31 for September 
-    * Stan will post to STEERCOM a draft evaluation cheat sheet for evaluating speakers. 
-  * 2020-10-05 
-    * Stan is working on a handout entitled Evaluation. Give people what kind of questions to ask presenters. Key phrases to trigger the ideas that need to be applied to every presentation. 
-  * 2020-11-02 
-    * Stan will add Evaluation sheet to handouts page after meeting. ​ Gives presenters ideas about what kind of questions they may be asked.

-===== Planning Schedule Database ===== 
-// SUMMARY: We have LibreOffice BASE for tracking BASE, MAIN and STLLUG meeting topics and speakers. ​ // 
-  * HISTORY: ​ :?: 
-    * Lee tested successfully on SUSE. 
-    * Gary & Stan have been loading. ​ 
-    * Stan is working on allowing multiple user updates. 
-    * Don **still** needs to test Stan's database on Libreoffice on Mac. Everyone else should test the database on their own systems. 
-  * *Minutes narratives prior to July 2020 Steercom have been removed.* ​ 
-  * 2020-06-29 for July 
-    * Stan discovered a conversion feature using **pdftotext** that generates useful full text version from the pdf report. 
-    * Expects to provide a downloadable concurrent text version along with the pdf version. 
-  * 2020-08-03 
-  * 2020-08-31 for September 
-    * Stan's doing a great job. Every differently sorted report has to start from scratch. Might have to use two formats, maybe not worthwhile to build a new format. 
-  * 2020-10-05 
-    * Don **still** needs to test Stan's database on Libreoffice on Mac. Everyone else should test the database on their own systems. 
-    * Gary: It's very useful. Everyone should try it out and see what changes need to be made. 
-  * 2020-11-02 
-    * Stan outline state of LibreOffice BASE internal database. ​ Awaiting update to go into repositories. 
-    * Neither Gary nor Don have tested on Apple boxes. 
-  * 2020-11-30 (for December) ​ 
-      * Data base likely won't be update until April 2021. 
-  * 2021-01-04 
-  * 2021-02-01 
-      * Speed of transfer inprovements with using SSH public keys with upload script working considerably faster. 
-      * Anticipated availability of remote Firebase conversion in LibreOffice BASE has been delayed because of problems. 
-      * Firebird embedded database creation put back to experimental considering the number of bugs.  
-      * Other possibilities. 
-  * 2021-03-01 
-      * General review and discussion. ​ 
-  * 2021-04-05 ​ 
-      * Good idea to do a BASE presentation to entire organization to introduce it to all.  
-      * Another thing for Stan to do. 
-      * LibreOffice BASE backed off on using Firebase RMDB because of bugs.  So, still can not have multiple users at same time.
