Topic: IPv6 Part 1
In April Rob Barnes will be giving the demo on IPv6. He's divided up the discussion into two parts which will allow time for questions and examples for each segment. April's topic will cover:
- IPv4 Overview
- Why IPv6?
- IPv6 address notation
- Address types
- IPv6 unicast address format
- Common addresses and prefixes
- Migration plan
Since IPv6 is on the horizon, we look forward to this need-to-know topic.

Our meetings are currently held in The Clovis Public Safety Community Room at: 1233 Fifth Street Clovis, CA 93612 every 3rd Saturday from 3:30-5:30.
During the year of 2010, we had a yearlong "lease", allowing us to have our usual spot reserved every 3rd Saturday of the year. This year, we have been limited to a month-to-month arrangement. We will make every effort to keep things as they are, and you will be notified of any changes.
Have something to hand out to interested ones: Media:Genericflyer.pdf
- FOSUG Dinner - FOSUG dinner is often held at our favorite location, Shanghai Chinese Cuisine. Dinner times and locations are discussed in the IRC chat and on the mailing list, and then posted here. FOSUG Dinners are a great way to meet the group, and ask questions about Linux/Open Source in a relaxed setting. Newcomers are welcome! Dinners are served family style, and generally run about $10 per person.
