   1.  Using Linux to learn how to play guitar with TuxGuitar (by Andreas Kieckens) 

       TuxGuitar is a tool that allows you to compose music and download 
       other people's compositions. It's focused mostly around guitar and 
       is a great tool to learn the instrument. Andreas will give a tour
       of the software and how he uses it to practice guitar playing or 
       write down music that he comes up with. 

   2. Adventures in Tail Call Optimization (by Travis Cardwell) 

      Tail call optimization is a feature of a programming language 
      (compiler or interpreter) that is essential for writing efficient 
      recursive functions. Travis will explain tail call optimization
      and then show its (mis)use in various programming languages, 
      including some that do not support it. 


Other items on the agenda are:
1. Introduction of new members, news about Linux/Open Source,
   general announcements, Q&A
2. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG) 

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools. TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings. Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

month on the 2nd Friday.
