Hi Jonathan

These days I don't use LaTeX as much as I've used to when I was in
Academia and I also never got involved directly with any TeX user
group. This sounds like a good way for me to "make amend" even though
my spare time is, in general, very limited. There's a TeX topic that I
wanted to explore, namely "virtual environments". As far as I know,
the closest thing to this is what is described in this answer on


which hasn't worked for me on Ubuntu straight-away. As I said, my
spare time is limited at the moment, so I haven't looked into this any
further, but I'd love to contribute to a TeX venv project in the
future if that will become a thing.

Should I feel like I can join one of these office hours I'll get back
to you for the zoom link. For now, I hope the group can live on.

"Egli è scritto in lingua matematica, e i caratteri son triangoli,
cerchi, ed altre figure
geometriche, senza i quali mezzi è impossibile a intenderne umanamente parola;
senza questi è un aggirarsi vanamente per un oscuro laberinto."

-- G. Galilei, Il saggiatore.
