Things to change when a DLUG meeting has happened

The location that's just had a meeting

Work out the next date of the next meeting at the location that's just been held

If today's in the month of the meeting that's just been held, this will give the date of the meeting in two months' time. Just paste it to a bash(1) prompt.

set `date '+%Y %m'`
y=$1 m=${2#0}
m=$((m + 2))
y=$((y + (m > 12)))
m=$(((m - 1) % 12 + 1))
((m % 2)) && day=Wed || day=Tue
seq 7 | xargs -I @ date -d $y-$m-@ '+%Y-%m-%d %a' | grep $day\$
