"Robert J. Chassell sent us a very nice tutorial to using gnuplot via GNU Emacs Calc mode, in response to our request for tutorials on the use of gnuplot. We hope to make it available online soon."
"We also received an offer of older systems running Linux, to be donated to educational institutions, from a company in the San Francisco area. We gratefully accepted the offer and have found homes for them in interested schools."
"One of the threads that has come up on our mailing list recently talks about educators' experiences with getting help and support from the Linux community. From the discussion it seems that there are interested educators out there trying to put Linux systems and computer labs together on their own and experiencing some difficulties. They often aren't aware of what local resources are available in their areas, and don't quite know where to look for help. This is where local LUGs can be of great use! If your LUG is looking for a project to get involved in, especially one that gives something to your community, you should consider contacting area school districts, parochial schools, private schools, and community centers. For the school districts you may want to speak to the technical director; for the rest, just explain what you have to offer and ask to speak to someone appropriate."
